The California Gold Rush (1848–1855) began on January 24, 1848, when gold was found by James W. Marshall at Sutter's Mill in Coloma, California. The first to hear confirmed information of the Gold Rush were the people in Oregon, the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii), and Latin America, who were the first to start flocking to the state in late 1848. All told, the news of gold brought some 300,000 people to California from the rest of the United States and abroad.[2] Of the 300,000, approximately half arrived by sea and half came from the east overland on the California Trail and the Gila River trail.

Our Gold Mining and Prospecting DVD is intended to document that period in American History.  Full of books and guides written by scholars at the time, it is meant to be a great educational tool for those trying to research and learn about the search for Gold as it pertains to our nation's history.  We also include historic gold maps in high resolution imagery to document where the gold rich areas were (or still are!). 

The titles in this collection shown below are all on this DVD in PDF format. All that is needed is the latest version of Adobe Reader, which can be downloaded for free off of Adobe's website.

This remains the largest, best, most complete Gold Mining Reference Collection on eBay!  We encourage you to compare what we offer, and you will see, we have every title that is being offered out there in inferior collections, plus a whole lot more.
