While the seminal California Gold Rush of 1849 produced numerous firsthand diaries and accounts, Joseph Goldsborough Bruff's-widely regarded as the best and most accurate-provides the basis of this narrative reimagining of a quintessential American legend. Ken Lizzio traces the pioneer's thrilling adventure from the first rumors of gold, through his crossing of the frontier, all the way to his incredible survival and escape to a prosperous life back east. This is the first book to create a narrative of Bruff's journey from his meticulously written and preserved diary. And with more than fifty of Bruff's original pencil sketches and paintings, Forty-Niner provides a new, immersive vision of one of America's most fabled eras.

The American Grit series brings you true tales of endurance, survival, and ingenuity from the annals of American history. These books focus on the trials of remarkable individuals with an emphasis on rich primary source material and artwork.
