Walking On Gold

New York: Julian Messner, 1940. First printing. Hardcover. Cloth in dust jacket, a near fine copy with just a touch of wear. The author, a native of Little Rock, Arkansas, came across a letter written to her grandfather in 1849 advising him to come to California for the gold rush. This inspired her to research the southern response to the gold rush. This novelisation recounts the journey of Peck Woods of Arkansas to California and the adventures along the way, modeled on what she knew of her grandfather's southern route. Rare in the first edition in such a nice example of the jacket, featuring illustrations by Russell Sherman in a Bentonesque vein. Near Fine / near fine. Item #H16287
