"Boessenecker has done as much as anyone to change and illuminate California’s Wild West image . . . if you would like a good read about how gold fever ignited a rush not only of families, but prostitutes, feuds, lynchings, duels, bare-knuckle prizefights, and vigilantes, then is this the place to start." –Wild West||

"A lively, thoughtful, well-researched book, and those interested in the rough, early years of the Mother Lode will not be disappointed." –Ledger-Dispatch (Jackson, Ca)||

"[Boessenecker] has done an amazing job of researching newspapers, legal documents, diaries, and other sources, as well as making skillful use of the recent research. . . . Excellent narrative . . . . Very well done, Gold Dust & Gunsmoke is a ‘must.’" –True West||

"Boessenecker’s meticulous research and vivid prose make this excellent book a fascinating collection of true stories." –Tulsa World||
