Description
James Macklin Chase was a poor Pennsylvanian who dreamed of making it rich in California. But at the turn of the century, the money to be made was in oil, citrus, water rights, and the railroads. Mack would have it all, if he had his way. And along the way, the men and women he met, the passion he found, the enemies he made, and the great historical figures like William Randolph Hearts, Leland Stanford, and Theodore Roosevelt, he encountered, helped bring glory to the extraordinary century. "Riveting...CALIFORNIA GOLD strikes pay dirt....This sweeping epic is a dynamite tribute to the sheer pluck of one man who scorns all obstacles. He instills vibrancy in all his characterizations."

display_description One man's ambitious journey into the heart of California's gold country becomes a pursuit for limitless wealth in the face of devastating ruin At the height of California's Gold Rush, men left everything behind for the chance at striking it rich. Now, some thirty years after its peak, gold fever still entices adventurous Easterners like James Macklin Chance to the western frontier. A wanderer and a nobody, James is drawn to California by the dream of lasting wealth-a dream so powerful he'll stop at nothing to see it through. In the enthralling style that has led millions to love his work, John Jakes captures the ambition and energy of California's pioneers. This ebook features an illustrated biography of John Jakes including rare images from the author's personal collection.
