Annotation Compared to the well-documented accounts of the mid-nineteenth-century American gold rush, very little has been written about the second American gold rush that took place in the 1930s during the Great Depression. This work explores the individuals who, faced with little way to survive and no prospect of a job, picked up a gold pan, headed for western streams and rivers, and found enough pay dirt to get by. Gold fields that had been abandoned for decades saw the return of people, this time in cars, who camped and worked areas wherever they could.
