Lake Mead is a man-made lake that lies on the Colorado River, 25 miles from the Las Vegas Strip, in the states of Nevada and Arizona. It is the largest reservoir in the United States in terms of water capacity. Formed by the Hoover Dam on September 30, 1935, the reservoir serves water to the states of Arizona, California, and Nevada, as well as some of Mexico, providing sustenance to nearly 20 million people and large areas of farmland.

Lake Mohave is quieter, water is cleaner; features an undeveloped shoreline; off road trails and primitive camping in coves. Bring your own firewood, as there is no forest left in this desert.

The Gold Rush of California

california indpendentThe largest migration in world history, of Overland pioneers traversing the continent on foot with wagons and horses, took place right here – beginning in 1848. The discovery of the precious metal gold, that set this rolling, was centered around the western Sierra rivers and mountains of California. The migration west began much earlier, but it increased dramatically after the news spread.

Gold Country Books can relate the historic details of yesteryear.

Within only a decade the entire West Coast was transformed into a developed landscape, with people coming from all over the world to stake out their claims, dreaming of fortunes or simply, just to find work and create a new life. Hence, California became a U.S. state in 1850. Consequently, the railroads followed soon after.

Transport yourself to the dusty trails and hardships of Overland pioneer life, or imagine a two year journey sailing around the bottom of South America to reach this desolate coast in the early 1800’s. Read these books below to get a glimpse into an Old California story. One you can only dream about, knowing what has become of it today.
