Popular media depict miners as a rough and tumble lot who digently worked the placers along scenic rushing rivers while living in roaring mining camps in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Trafzer and Hyer destroy this mythic image by offering a collection of original newspaper articles that describe in detail the murders, rapes, and enslavements perpetrated by those who participated in the infamous Gold Rush.
