The American River

By Frank Roderus

Action & adventure, Historical fiction | eBook


Sutter's Mill, where the first nugget was found, was driven by the American River and began the biggest migration of humans in the history of the world up to that time. Three hundred thousand flooded to California from all over the world...and with them came murder, theft, prostitution, and crime beyond the ken of most. Gary McCarthy is a historian who weaves history and fiction like no other author. Don't miss this great novel of California.



Gary McCarthy: I have been writing American West historical and western novels for quite a few years now and have been fortunate enough to win a number of national writing awards for novels published by the biggest NYC publishing houses. My love of the West and its history runs deep and stems from the travels and the interesting places where I’ve lived. I have a B.S. degree in Animal Science from Cal Poly, Pomona and an M.S. Degree in Agricultural Economics from the University of Nevada, Reno and as a boy I grew up on horses and worked on several ranches during my summers in Idaho where I really began to appreciate ranching and big country. Later, while employed as an Economist in Carson City for the State of Nevada, I began to take adult education writing class under a wonderful Professor Emeritus named Dr. Paul Eldridge. He taught me how to tell a story and that creating memorable characters was always far more important and difficult than simply focusing on a plot.
