North Carolina the first golden state

Wagner, Tricia Martineau
"In 1799, twelve-year-old Conrad Reed found a big yellow rock while fishing in a stream on his family's North Carolina farm. Nobody realized it was real gold, so it was used as a doorstop for three years! The Reed Gold Mine is now a National Historic Landmark with more than 60,000 visitors each year, and this picture book for young readers tells the fascinating story of how Conrad's discovery led to America's first gold rush"--
