Everything in this book is taken from 1848 and 1849 Eastern newspapers. Articles, editorials, sermons, poetry, songs, advertisements -- and letters from the multitudes who were striving toward California via the Isthmus of Panama, around Cape Horn, through the Strait of Magellan, across the plains, the Gila River route, and via Mexico and Nicaragua. Here is the California Gold Rush -- upheaval, adventure, suffering, death, wonderful success, and tragic failure -- the record of the great event of the age.

For those who visit the United Arab Emirates (UAE), staying in its the lavish hotels and browsing in the ultra-modern shopping malls of Abu Dhabi or Dubai, the country can be a mystery, a glass and concrete creation that seems to have sprung from the desert overnight. Keepers of the Golden Shore looks behind this glossy façade, illuminating the region’s history, which stretches from the ancient Arabian tribes who controlled a desolate but economically important shoreline to the ostentatious architectural wonders—bankrolled by a massive wealth of oil—that characterize it today. As Michael Quentin Morton recounts, the region now known as the UAE likely began as a trading post between Mesopotamia and Oman, and since that time has been the stage of important economic and cultural exchanges. It has seen the rise and fall of a thriving pearl industry, piracy, invasions and wars, and the arrival of the oil age that would make it one of the richest countries on earth. Since the early 1970s, when seven sheikhs agreed to enter into a union, it has been a sovereign nation, carrying on the resourceful spirit—with resplendent fervor—that the brutally inhospitable landscape has long demanded of the people. Ultimately, Morton shows that the country is not only rich in oil and money but in an extraordinarily deep history and culture.

From the first human settlements to the latest marine explorations, The Golden Shore tells the tale of the history, culture, and changing nature of California’s coasts and ocean. David Helvarg takes the reader on both a geographic and literary journey along the state’s 1,100-mile Pacific coastline, from the Oregon border to the San Diego–Tijuana international border fence and out into its whale-, seal-, and shark-rich offshore seamounts, rock isles, and kelp forests. Part history, part travelogue, part love letter, The Golden Shore captures the spirit of the California coast and its mythic place in American culture.

What happened to the California dream? Was it consumed by fire? Swept away in a mudslide? Or was it just lost in soul-crushing traffic? That Golden Shore is a bittersweet love letter to the Golden State in slow-motion apocalypse, a tragi-comic caravan of aging rock stars and yoga gurus, surf punks and besieged immigrants, washouts from Hollywood, Silicon Valley, and the professional surf tour. It charts the odd collisions of history, culture, and spirituality that have seduced people to California for centuries: its lore and landscapes; its fragile, vanishing, impossible beauty; the mad frustrations of trying live in a place collapsing under the weight of its own mythology. In That Golden Shore, a working musician holed up in an off-the-grid beach town failing into the ocean gives us a stage-eye view of the tribal power of music, the healing power of surfing, and the enduring, redemptive power of landscape.
