A 'riveting . . . sweeping epic' of one man driven by gold fever, by the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of North and South-Richmond Times-Dispatch.

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, a poor Pennsylvanian who is drawn to California by the dream of lasting wealth-a dream so powerful he'll stop at nothing to see it through. Along the way he'll encounter grand passion, ruthless enemies, and larger-than-life titans like Leland Stanford, Theodore Roosevelt, and William Randolph Hearst, who helped shape a country's destiny.

A fantastic novel? I have read it three times. I’ve listened to it once on Audiobooks I’m very happy with the narration.

Average in character development. Quite predictable to me.
