The discovery of gold by a team of mill workers in 1848 sparked a frenzy that shook the world. People swarmed to California from as far afield as China and Australia. They came in the hope of making their fortunes in the new world. In this narrative, Brands brings the fervour of the gold rush vividly to life.
