viii+320pp. In 1849 the Gold rush-era in California was a circus of dreamers, desperadoes and a few men who wished to grasp political power. Gwin, an aristocratic Southerner with a tarnished past and Broderick, a veteran of the bare-knuckle politics of the New York slums, both had their eyes on the main prize - a seat in the U.S. Senate with the anticipation of Californian being admitted to the Union. The story of their fatal rivaly, the bitterness of their fued being compounded by their opposite views on the slavery question. It ended in a duel that destroyed them both. Index.
