About the Author

Born and raised in war-torn Germany, Rosemarie Schulga emigrated to Australia, but not before falling love with an American soldier. Their bond brought her to America, where they married and had two daughters. Rosemarie studied art and Russian at the University of Arizona. In 1964, she was asked by a lady to translate a long letter in German, hand-written in Gothic script, by her uncle. The letter recounted the fascinating adventures of a young man in the 1890s Gold Rush in Alaska and around the world, which captured her heart. Rosemarie felt it deserved not to be forgotten. Having written books about her own harsh youth: In the Shadow of the Mill and Girl Without a Country, which she translated into German as Im Schatten der Mühle and Mädchen Courage, gave her the inspiration to write Gold Fever in the 1890s.
