However, only half of the 300,000 gold seekers traveled by land. The other half traveled by sea.

He examines the California Gold Rush through the eyes of 30,000 French participants.

In so doing, he offers a completely original analysis of an importantbut previously neglectedchapter in the history of the Gold Rush, which occurred at a time of sweeping changes in France.Rohrbough is the author of Days of Gold, which is generally accepted as the essential text on the subject. This new book comes out of his extended research in French archives. He is the first to provide an international focus to these pivotal events in mid-nineteenth-century America. The Rush to Gold is an important contribution to the fast-growing field of transnational American history.
