Opis

With the alchemy of great history, Susan Johnson transforms the familiar story of the Gold Rush into one that is sparkling and new. Our collective memory knows about the Gold Rush: the mid-nineteenth century Wild West where unshaven men raised hell and panned for gold. But this is not the whole story which would tell of a social vortex-multiracial, multiethnic, often homosocial-in which Frenchmen live alongside Anglos and Cherokee women. Roaring Camp explores the dynamic social world created by the Gold Rush in the Sierra Nevada foothills. In it we find Mexican families who worked the mines, did the wash and rose up against Anglo rule. There are the Miwok Indians who tried to maintain their traditions even while constructing the sawmill at Sutter's fort. We enter the all-male households of the diggings, the mines where the men worked and the fandango houses where they played. With a keen eye for character and story, Johnson shows us how this peculiar world evolved and how what we now know as the history of the Gold Rush took root.
