description -

Illustrations and maps throughout of pioneer days, mining, camps, mining towns, pioneers, etc. A true story of pioneer days in Canada, when gold seekers came from the four corners of the earth. When the California Gold Rush was over, 1800 adventurers came from San Francisco alone to the lure of the Fraser River and Cariboo gold fields. This booklet was dedicated to that breed of individualist and eccentrics who struggled with the hardships of the mining camp and the uncivilized frontier.
