California Gold Rush: A guide to California in the 1850s (Sightseers) by Julie Ferris

Stake your claim and start prospecting! The travel tips are as good as gold in this fascinating look at San Francisco in the 1850s. Look under headings such as Shopping, Accommodation, and Top Attractions and youll find all the information you need to survive in this pioneer town. Children struck with Gold Rush Fever will discover what its like to visit a ghost town; how the miners made their own soap from water, wood ash, and bear fat; why the gold dust under a miners fingernails was as good as cash in any boarding house, and, of course, how to pan for gold in the river without getting shot at by rivals. Just to make sure young prospectors dont get lost, theres a fold-out map at the end of the book, and a Historical souvenir quiz to make sure theyve sifted every nugget of fascinating fact.
