Trailblazers, entrepreneurs, heroes and rascals unearthed gold and diamonds north of the Mother Lode. At the northern mines, financiers of the Industrial Revolution developed their claims until the country's first environmental legislation dissuaded them. Ghost towns with vast cemeteries attest to historic changes. Gold Rivers of Northern California tells the story of native tribes, trappers, settlers and questionable heroes.The northern mines region remains little changed along the Feather and Yuba Rivers. The Yuba is the nation's richest gold bearing river and still productive 150 years after the gold rush.Gold Rivers of Northern California explores the history, geology and resources of California's Yuba and Feather Rivers wilderness, north of the popularized Mother Lode region of goldrush activity. The primitive conditions of early fortune seekers still prevail.Illustrations and maps are included and thumbnail sketches of the founders, bounders and citizens of the era. Early settlements are described as they roared and declined or developed new character and new foundations.Recreational and cultural programs, parks and museums today follow a diversity of populations through their shifting attitudes.Illustrations, bibliography and maps are more
