Most histories of the California Mother Lode have focused on the mines around the American and Yuba rivers. However, the "Southern Mines" - those centered around Calaveras County in the central Sierra - were also of importance in the development of California's mineral wealth. Calaveras Gold offers a detailed and meticulously researched history of mining and its economic impact in this region from the first discoveries in the 1840s until the present.
