Episode 5 : All That Glitters – In part one of this three part series, we meet the Grosh Brothers and follow them from through their adventures from the peak of the Gold Rush through the discovery of America’s richest Silver strike. Their incredible story is detailed through a series of 82 letters preserved by the families. You’ll be amazed at the stories of these two young men and their adventures as they give us first hand accounts of the journey and hardships they faced during the trip to California during 1849 Gold Rush and Beyond. Do the boys strike it rich? Have a listen and find out! Their story leads us into what was then called the Utah Territory. (It would soon become Nevada) and Virginia City, the site of the discovery of the incredible Comstock Lode.
