Edward Dolnick's newest book is The Rush, a close-up and fast-paced look at the California gold rush. In 1849 the world went mad. For the first time, an ordinary person could transform his life. The Declaration of Independence had given every American the right to pursue happiness. The gold rush promised the chance to catch it. His previous books includeThe Forger's Spell, the New York Times bestselling account of the greatest art hoax of the 20th century, and The Rescue Artist, winner of the Edgar Award in 2006 for best non-fiction.

Coming August 12. Pre-order now.


"Dolnick's compulsively readable story is one that's rarely been told better."

"New in its color and descriptive riches ... Dolnick tapped into the diaries and memoirs of men and women of the era to bring brilliantly alive the experiences of so many thousands."
