Holliday, J.S. The World Rushed In -- The California Gold Rush Experience. Simon and Schuster, New York, 1981
The World Rushed In is unlike any other book ever written about that astonishing adventure, the California gold rush. A pioneering achievement in the use of historical documents, this book is at once an intimate, personal story and an all-encompassing record of the gold rush as national experience. Building on the extraordinary diary and letters of a gold seeker named William Swain, enlarging his experience through the use of more than 500 diaries and letter collections of other men, J.S. Holliday gives the reader a compelling opportunity to be part of the life and times of the 49ers.
