"This is the story of the epic struggle between the farmers of the Great Central Valley of California
and the hydraulic mining interests, as typified by the Cherokee Mine, one of largest in the world
during its heyday. . . . The road to Cherokee was the road to busy camps and prosperous towns.
The road to Fortune. The road to Disaster. The road to Enterprise. The road to Adventure. The road
to Hate. The road to Love. What more can we ask of any road?” ~ Mary Ray King
