“A freakishly charming travel memoir of a man just like you: intelligent, curious, motivated, fun, and intentionally positive. With those traits, zero gold-locating skills, and some huge balls, Boggan sets out on a humongous adventure: searching for gold in the American West. ”
—Library Journal, "Books for Dudes"

After the Financial Crisis, the price of gold reached peaks never before seen in history. All over the world, particularly in the US, people with no experience of prospecting began shopping for shovels, pickaxes, gold pans, tents, generators, and all manner of equipment they had no idea how to use. And off they went mining.

In 2013, Steve Boggan decided he wanted a piece of the action, flying to San Francisco to join the 21st century’s gold rush in a quest to understand the allure of the metal — and maybe find a bit for himself, too. The result is GOLD FEVER, a travelogue like no other. Boggan also takes readers back in time to the original San Franciscan gold rush, two centuries ago, and gets a crash course in the science and economics of gold. Written with Boggan’s characteristic wit and self-effacing charm, GOLD FEVER is a hugely entertaining travelogue.
