Legends of the West
Volume TwoBook - 2007
The Legends of the West series covers the tumultuous 1830s through the 1860s in California, Nevada, and Utah-from when the American military and Mexican bandits warred over the riches of Spanish California, to the Bear Flag rebellion that carried California from Mexican to American ownership, to the 1850s gold rush, to the silver discovered in Virginia City in 1859, to the beginning of the Civil War and the division of a nation. This second book in the series tells of the heart-stopping adventures of rebel David Bollin, ship's officer Rafer Maddox, and Wells Fargo & Co. attorney Jack Ryland. The California gold rush glittered with promise but it would change everything about their lives. Volume Two contains Gold Rush Prodigal, Delta Passage, and Hangtown Lawman.
