Annotation The birth of modern California, framed between the gold rush years and the 1890s, is grandly told in this important book. Many factors contributed to California's early image as a rough, careless, risk-taking place, populated by adventurers of every sort. Inevitably, there were conflicts, particularly between miners and the farmers who settled in the state, leading to a dramatic legal battle over hydraulic mining in 1884. Californiana Collection.
