    "If I were to search for a fiction book abotu the California Gold Rush, a romance novel is probably on the bottom of novel types I'd be seeking out. While the novel is set during the period, the gold rush doens't necessarily have a large plot point."

    "This is a wonderful collection of stories. I never really knew much about this exciting time in our country's history, so I learned a lot from these books. Even though they are fiction, I think the author did a fantastic job of giving the reader an authentic feel for the time period. Plus the story lines were really entertaining."
