Gold Struck, 1852: A New Hampshire Tale And A River Rising

Newman, Doris Nelson
(Doris Nelson Newman, 1992)

Retired school teacher and Goshen historian, Newman has written two historical novels based on Charles Emerson of Newport, New Hampshire. Gold Struck, 1852, tells of his voyage around Cape Horn en route for California, where he worked in the gold mines. He earned enough money to buy a farm in New Hampshire for himself and his bride. The second novel, A River Rising, follows Charles' experiences in the Union Army training camp in Concord, and his Civil War service in the 16th NH regiment. Both novels portray the lives of his family back in New Hampshire awaiting his return.
