(5 Stars – 2 Customer Reviews)
Lee E. Hollingsworth’s “A Gold Rush Tragedy: The George Hollingsworth Letters ” is a never before published firsthand account of gold rush life. Going to California in the 1850’s was dangerous but George Hollingsworth set out from Missouri in 1850, leaving his wife and four children behind. But what was life like back home? What was the experience of crossing those rugged plains and mountains? And why did so many people return from California empty-handed, if they returned at all? This book gives us a glimpse into the heart and mind of America in the 1800s — into the brutal realities and the strength of character it took to face them head-on. You will laugh, shake your head, and question life’s decisions.
