They saw the Elephant: Women in the California Gold Rush - JoAnn Levy

Price: $13.95

The phrase "seeing the elephant" symbolized for '49 Gold Rushers the exotic, the mythical, the once-in-a-lifetime adventure, unequaled anywhere else but in the journey to the promised land of fortune: California. Most western myths generally depict an exclusively male Gold Rush. Levy's book debunks that myth. Through dramatic, poignant & often humorous prose, a remarkable group of women travel, work, and write their way across the pages of western history. 265 pages, Trade Paper. Please note that orders are filled once a week, generally on Thursday mornings.
