Encyclopedia > Gold Country

Gold Country (also Mother Lode Country) is a region of northeastern California famed for the mines and mineral deposits which so famously brought the '49ers west for the California Gold Rush. Gold Country is generally thought to lie north of Yosemite, west of the Sierra Nevada and within nine of California's counties: Amador, Butte, Calaveras, El Dorado, Mariposa, Nevada, Placer, Sacramento and Tuolumne. In general, the region lies along California State Highway 49 between the north fork of the Yuba River and the middle fork of the Cosumnes River.

Gold Rush: Gold Country (863 words)
But California gold was different--easily accessible to anyone with a few simple tools and a willingness to work hard.
Part of the reason they could charge so much for their talents was the fact that women were rare in the early gold rush days.
The man who pulled the trigger on the gold rush was expanding his sphere of influence--and earning unheard of profits.
