The Call of Gold (1936) by Newell D. Chamberlain


PREFACE

This is a story of real people and real millions, that played important and necessary parts in the upbuilding of our beloved State and Nation.

It has been the purpose of the author to extract and make available some of the nuggets of valuable and interesting information, hidden in the mines or files of old newspapers and in old books and letters, which have hitherto been practically inaccessible to the present-day world. From these precious relics and from stories told him by old-timers, he has endeavored to choose the real fragrance and color, as portrayed by the pioneers themselves, under pioneer environment, and not enlarged or warped by historians of a later age, in order that the present generation may enjoy the thoughts, expressions and reactions of the pioneers, as they tell their own story, just as far as possible.

The author values most highly the testimonial given on the succeeding page, by an eminent, nationally-known Californian, who is especially well qualified to judge the historical merits of this work.

In the following book, “TRUE TALES ON THE GOLD ROAD TO YOSEMITE”, Mr. Newell D. Chamberlain has gathered together a wealth of historical data of one of California’s vast gold regions, a great deal of which is no doubt known to but few people. From my own knowledge of the region, his narration appears to be a correct historical portrayal of the events therein contained and should prove interesting reading, not only to Californians, who are so proud of their State, but to visitors to California, and all who are interested in the history, development and expansion of our Nation’s vast natural resources and its wealth of natural beauty and grandeur.

History is the chronicle of human events and the portrayal of objects and qualifies people to travel and enjoy the country through which we pass, to the fullest extent.

I commend Mr. Chamberlain upon the extent of his historical research in the preparation of this work, and for his clear and interesting presentation of his subject.

J. J. Trabucco
