And the World Rushed In! One of the most remarkable events in world history was the discovery of GOLD in California. This one cataclysmic event turned life upside down for the whole globe.
If you live in California, and especially if you went to school in California, you have lived and breathed the impact of this rather short span on the human time-line ~ no more than 40 years in total, from discovery to decline.
BZ Smith and Peg Reza live in the heart of Gold Rush Country in the Central Mother Lode Region. They’ve embarked on a journey back in time, and you’re invited to join them.
Striking Up Gold Mountain: Stories & Songs of the California Gold Rush offers a lively collection that reveals the history of this rich period, both its playful moments and its darkest. With nearly two full hours of tales and music, listeners can join the journey up Gold Mountain.
Now BZ and Peg want to share the many resources that they used to create this 2-CD set.
