Starr, Kevin. Americans and the Californian Dream, 1850 - 1915

1986

Book ID: 86409

In the late nineteenth century, California became "the cutting edge of the American dream," the final frontier both geographically and in the minds of the many men and women who went there to pursue their destinies. In this fascinating volume, Kevin Starr examines California's formative years to discover the origins of the California dream and the social, psychological and symbolic impact it has had not only on Californians but on the rest of the country.
