The story of outlaw Black Bart, who robbed 28 Wells Fargo stagecoaches, is among the 36 chapters on California’s historical events.
Each chapter in Pryor’s books comprises a stand-alone incident in California’s history. Reader’s will learn where California’s last “dry” town was located and be able to read about “Emperor Norton,” one of California’s most colorful and revered characters.
In this book, James Marshall relates the incidents surrounding his discovery of Gold at Coloma, an event that changed the landscape of California.
Readers can also learn about “Wheelbarrow Johnny” who came west to look for gold and ended up making wheelbarrows. He later went on to become one of the nation’s most noted automobile magnates.
The book is available at local bookstores.
