The story is of a family moving to California, hoping to become rich in gold, as they had heard fantastic stories of people becoming wealthy overnight. They came from Kentucky, and were also drawn to the pasture lands where money could be made raising cattle. This is the photo play edition, which has been revised and enlarged from the original. When writing the photo play version many additional incidents were introduced which could not be found in the original book. Although based on Paul Armstrongs dramatized version of the book, there was no attempt to follow the dramatic version. The illustrations are reproductions of photos taken for the photo play, and were all taken in the Redwood Forest. Twelve illustrations. The green binding has light to medium wear at the corners, minor wear at the bottom of the boards, and the top and bottom spines edges are bent in. 180 pages, no marks or tears; one of the illustrations is laid in. 12mo - over 6Â¾" - 7Â¾" tall.
