Gold Fleet for California Forty-Niners from Australia and New Zealand

Author(s): Charles Bateson

Transport & Maritime | Secondhand

This is the little-known story of the people who ran mad after California- 'completely bit by the yellow fever'. They had nothing, and most of them feared nothing, but they danced quadrilles on the poop as they voyaged into the unknown. Their spirit of adventure is what lies behind its history and gives it its deepest meaning.
