Newell D. Chamberlain was born in 1880 and spent his early years in San Francisco. In 1926 he established Camp Midpines, so named because it was "amidst the pines and midway between Merced and Yosemite." In the 1930s he compiled this chronicle of events during and after the Gold Rush -- drawing on newspapers of the time and interviews with early pioneers and their children.
