A love letter to the author's home town of Paradise, California!

CALIFORNIA LEGENDS...These are chronicles of the Old West--of the native people who lived on the land for generations and the pioneers who came from all over the world in search of riches…the struggle to survive in a land without laws…the strange bedfellows that resulted from the clash of cultures…and the common language of the heart that spoke of a love more precious than gold.

NATIVE GOLD: Book 1

Mathilda Hardwicke, a rebellious artist rejected by her family and New York society, heads west to Gold Rush California to make a new life for herself as a mail-order bride. When fate leaves her at the altar in Paradise Bar--a ramshackle gold camp full of ragtag miners--she's sure she's leaped out of the frying pan and into the fire.

But unbeknownst to Mattie, she has a protector. Sakote, a fierce Konkow warrior, is bound by honor to watch over the white woman. And though his tribe is threatened by the encroaching miners, he's strangely drawn to Mattie, who delights in making pictures of him and whose destiny seems entwined with his.

When a tragedy at the camp forces Sakote to steal Mattie away, she finds herself in an unfamiliar Paradise of savage wonder, and she soon discovers a forbidden love more precious than gold.

    This book captures the California old west like none I've read b

    This book captures the California old west like none I've read before.  I grew up in an old mining town in Tennessee and often fantasized about the interactions between upper and lower class, immigrants and natives, and this book brings many of my own fantasies to life.  I've always been a fan of old California, often ignored in stories of the "old west.  Can't wait for the next California Legends release!

    Breathtaking! OMG I just finished reading a breathtaking America

    Breathtaking!
    OMG I just finished reading a breathtaking American historical adventure!
    I needed something different to read and discovered NATIVE GOLD, #1 of the California Legends Trilogy, written by Glynnis Campbell. This is the first book that I read by this author, and it won't be the last one. I really liked, this story, because it was set in the Gold Rush period; I loved her two main characters Mattie, a sketch artist and Sakote, a brave Konkow warrior who found love where two worlds collided. It's pace paced, very well written, beautiful sensual chemistry between her characters, lots of powerful emotions! Ms. Campbell is a very talented storyteller, I could not put the book down. She is also a very descriptive writer, her words flow! I highly recommend this book, if you love an historical romance filled with passion and adventure. I am looking forward to read her next book NATIVE WOLF #2 of the California Legends Trilogy. You need to add this book to your TBR list!

    This book was amazing! I grew up in Paradise California and I ha

    This book was amazing! I grew up in Paradise California and I have often wondered about how life was like back in the gold rush days. Our town is rich in history and tradition and we celebrate the gold rush days every April. Being from here I was able to picture the locations and story she was weaving. Even if you are not from here (I think everyone should visit a small town at least once in thier life time) you can picture the story in your mind. I can not wait for the next book!!

    NATIVE GOLD by Glynnis Campbell is an exciting American Historic

    NATIVE GOLD by Glynnis Campbell is an exciting American Historical Romance set in 1850 Paradise California. #1 in the "California Legends" Trilogy and what a beginning. With Ms. Campbell's usual style of vivid descriptions,engaging,realistic characters you can not go wrong. When Sakote, a Konkow warrior,meets Mathilda Hardwicke, "Mattie",a rebellious artist, you have NATIVE GOLD. Tarzan meets Jane, Indian style. Written with descriptions so vivid and details so sound, you feel you are there among, the miners,landscape,Indians, as they navigate their heartbreak,tragedies,triumphs,joys,sadness,hopes,dreams,and their fears. Mattie is a mail order bride,but when she arrives in Paradise,she finds, her intended has died,and so the story begins.... "Native Gold" is filled with the California Gold Rush of 1850's,prejudice,culture differences,passion,friendship,and love. As two world collide,the white man's world and the Indian world, so does Mattie and Sakote's. A powerful story of overcoming prejudice,the power of love and friendship. I can hardly wait to read the rest of the story.....

    Loved it! A must read for any reader who enjoys the American Gold Rush days, romance, historical facts,the danger of the "old West" and two cultures coming together. You will not regret this fast paced story of love and culture. Received for an honest review from the author.
