Squatter’s Gold is a novel with a prologue of historic ﬁction about Sacramento, the California
gold rush, hidden gold and the Squatter’s Riots of 1850.
Fast forward to Sacramento in the year 2002:
A crime mystery of murder, gangs and found treasure; A story of colorful homeless campers
and their personal struggles; The politics of homelessness and advocates at an interfaith
center; Protest, justice and redemption.
The cast of haunted, but at times funny, hero’s and villains and scenes of charity, murder, drug use, recovery and civil disobedience are inspired by actual events drawn from the author’s thirty-ﬁve years of experience as a street activist, social
worker and creator of homeless programs in Sacramento, California.
“Squatter's Gold a compelling, vivid
read whose underlying consideration
of social issues will linger in the mind
as much as its story of a struggle for
gold and new opportunities”
