The Road to Cherokee: A California Epic by Mary Ray King
Historical novel of families who traveled by wagon and settled in Cherokee

“I got my own teeth, my own hair, my health, my own mind, and my own money. Now, if I could get me a man of my own, I bet I would go to Californy!”   -- Granny Aimes, 85 years young

As desired, Granny came to California by wagon with her family, the Normans and the Morrises, to begin a new adventure in a state flush with gold and promise. 

With pioneer grit, the Normans followed the placer gold while the Morrises found gold in the rich soil of Butte County. The threads of their story—with twists of hope, fear, betrayal, and redemption—are woven into the David and Goliath struggle between two of California’s largest industries at that time—agriculture and gold hydraulicking. 

Mary Ray King’s engaging storytelling brings to life unforgettable characters doing what people do today—live. It tells of two families surviving the challenges of life against the backdrop of two industries fighting to survive.
