KIRKUS REVIEW

From Big Springs near Mt. Shasta, 320 miles to the Golden Gate, is traced the life of this river. The Indians, padres, Spanish, Russian inhabitants, their stories and those of outstanding characters, Jedediah Smith, Sutter and others. There's gold, wheat, irrigation, fruit, Chinese, valley crops, river captains and their craft, gambling besides -- and this ""final American chapter of the free soil"" has its good moments for the follower of this Rivers of America series.
