Queens of the Mines features the true stories of gold rush women who blossomed from the camouflaged, twisted roots of California. Horror is revealed in true tales of the violence between races, mystery, rape and murder. We uncover a woman’s lynching, the devestating lack of human rights, the capitilization of slavery, devastation of natural disasters, and the genocide of the indegenous people, swept under the rug. It turns out the “American Dream” looked different to everyone, depending on who you were, and where you came from. Have our textbooks been self-serving of the American myth they called Manifest Destiny? Find out on “Queens of the Mines”. Eliza Inman, a frontier pioneer, in 1843 wrote, “If Hell laid to the west, Americans would cross Heaven to reach it”, it looks like she was right.
