The contradictions of the new frontier were never so evident as when gold was discovered in the Sierra Nevada mountains. This approximately three-hour audio collection brings to life the tumult that was Northern California circa 1849. Chronicling the lives and times of a cast of characters both rapacious and refined, Days of ’49 takes the listener on an evocative exploration, from prologue to aftermath, of the California Gold Rush, an era of grubstakes and greed; hoopskirts and hope.
