With a 'you are there' immediacy writer Rand Richards vividly brings to existence what San Francisco was once like in the course of the landmark yr of 1849. in line with eyewitness debts and formerly missed legitimate documents, Richards chronicles the explosive progress of a wide-open city rife with violence, playing, and prostitution, it all fueled by way of unbridled greed.
Everyone on the town from urban officers to the bottom gravedigger had one overriding aim—to get wealthy, amd the earlier the higher. even if gold used to be the trap, many of the wealthiest participants in San Francisco accrued riches no longer from gold mining yet from different endeavors. retailers who may perhaps get their fingers on coveted items made huge gains. actual property speculators did even larger as costs for urban plenty escalated sharply within the gold-inflated economic system. urban officers proved greedier than m, surreptitiously changing municipal money and land less than their regulate to their very own benefit.
Mud, Blood, and Gold eventually proves to be a cautionary story: the irrational habit unleashed by means of the lust for riches was once the undoing of many. via the top of 1849—a yr that had begun with such promise and excessive hopes—San Francisco had turn into a rat-infested, squalid quagmire the place thosewho had now not made their "pile" chanced on themselves engaged in a Darwinian fight for survival. affliction, suicide, and different factors resulted in a grim demise toll.
Despite the turmoil, it was once the lust for riches that reigned superb and gave start to town of San Francisco. That transcendent mania for fast wealth—the first such in U. S. history—makes San Francisco's violent starting, with all its extra, a very epic American tale.
