Mining historian Kerby Jackson introduces us to a classic work of California history in this important re-issue of "Butte: The Story of a California County" which was written by George C. Mansfeld in 1919.

This hard to find booklet tells the story of how Butte County, California first came into existence, starting with details about its first native inhabitants who lived there before the coming of the white man and his first settlements which was a result of the 1849 California Gold Rush. It goes on to discuss the lives of the first settlers, rounding them out with details about their quest for gold in what became Butte County. Also featured are details on early towns in the county, how they were governed and how their early occupants did their work and spent their leisure time.
