Nothing was more fundamental to the myth of the American West than the idea of making a fortune. In 1849, thousands would leave behind jobs and families to travel out West in the hopes of finding gold. Most would discover instead great hardship and disappointment. Their arrival would permanently alter the physical landscape of California and the future of the United States. Today, the American West owes much of its present to the history of these fortune hunters and their willingness to sacrifice for a dream.
