Art of the gold rush by Janice Tolhurst Driesbach ( )
7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The California Gold Rush captured the get-rich dreams of people around the world more completely than almost any event in American history. This catalog, published in celebration of the sesquicentennial of the 1848 discovery of gold at Sutter's Mill, shows the vitality of the arts in the Golden State during the latter nineteenth century and documents the dramatic impact of the Gold Rush on the American imagination. Among the throngs of gold-seekers in California were artists, many self-taught, others formally trained, and their arrival produced an outpouring of artistic works

An American exodus; a record of human erosion in the Thirties by Dorothea Lange ( Book )
6 editions published in 1969 in English and French and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Exodus from the land is not new. Since the Middle Ages in Europe an unending stream of rural folk has fed the growth of cities and furnished manpower for rising manufactures. In America throughout our national history people have migrated in a double stream. One current, itself a part of the 500-year old stream of Europe, has drawn off surplus population from land already settled in order to urbanize and industrialize the United States. The other current, described a century ago by the Frenchman de Toqueville, has moved steadily westward with "the solemnity of a providential event... like a deluge of men rising unabatedly, and daily driven onward by the hand of Gof." Its goal was a piece of unoccupied domain for each family to assute a living through tillage of the soil. The generation of our fathers saw the end of the wester frontier of free land. And it is now a full decade since the doors of our factories were open wide to boys from the farms. Indeed, in the face of industrial collapse in 1929 millions of Americans sought refuge in recoil to the land from which they had sprung... Now our people are leaving the soil again. They are being expelled by powerful forces of mans and of Nature. They crowd into cities and towns near the plantations. Once more great numbers of landseekers thek west. This contemporary exodus is our theme. It attains its most dramatic form on the deltas, the prairies, and the plains of the South, and in the tide of people which moves to the Pacific Coast. But this time the cities and tows are already burdened with unemployed, and opportunity upon the land is sharply restricted
