The California Gold Rush is perhaps my obsession. I collect anything I can afford that relates even slightly to the Mother Lode and the mining camps of the Gold Rush. In fact, my collecting and quest for information regarding the Gold Country, its towns and their inhabitants, led me to write a book about the California Gold Rush, which I've just recently published. It is entitled The California Gold Rush: Highway 49 Revisited, and is available for sale. A good portion of the book is also available online, click here to check it out.

Take a look at some of the postcards I've collected over the years.
