Series Synopsis: Dramatizations based on the legends stemming from the gold rush of 1849. ---------------------------------------------------- One of the first shows to be sponsored by physicians through the AMA where they could advertise as a group. Little known historical dramas provided the prestige the group sought. Early shows told the stories of poet Edwin Markham, of camels brought into the California desert, and of the Wes's "roughest-toughest" stagecoach driver, Charlie Parkhurst, "who only upon his death was discovered to be a woman."
