In the third installment of Don Brown's Actual Times series, Gold! Gold from the American River! is the story of the California gold rush--the uncharted journey across hostile land, the laborious process of panning for gold, the success of savvy entrepreneurs, and the fortunes of the marginalized, from slaves and American Indians to women and foreigners.


Gold Fever! The excitement, drive, and adrenaline of the gold rush, narrated by Don Brown and brought to life with his vivid watercolors.
