In the early-19th century, California was a dusty outpost few Americans had visited. Settlers began to trickle west, but it wasn't until 1849 that the onslaught began: the Gold Rush.

SAVE OUR HISTORY ventures into the ghost towns of Montana and Northern California and reanimates the gilded days of the Gold Rush. Combining archival material, original footage, and interviews with Gold Rush historians and aficionados, this comprehensive program offers detailed insight into one of the most tumultuous eras in U.S. history. Learn how gold was mined and discover the technology used to hit "pay dirt." Set off an explosion in a gold mine and wander through the lawless towns that boomed fast and went bust even faster--where fortunes were made and lost overnight.

GOLD RUSH GHOST TOWNS explores one of America's most fascinating periods: the glory days of the western Gold Rush.
