This story is a comical one. The American gold rush has always been fascinating; such a lawless situation gives a really interesting insight into the innate morality of human beings when there is no one around to control them. Finding this blog post about an interview with a Cornish tin miner who went to California with his brother to make his fortune was the motivation be This story is a comical one. The American gold rush has always been fascinating; such a lawless situation gives a really interesting insight into the innate morality of human beings when there is no one around to control them. Finding this blog post about an interview with a Cornish tin miner who went to California with his brother to make his fortune was the motivation behind writing a story about it! The interview is written in Cornish dialect and to be honest, I used it as a structure for the story. I took a few quotes from it, and built the world of Cornishmen in the Sierra Nevada hills around those quotes. It is set circa 1849, but the exact date isn’t too important. It is a tale of brotherly love and the violent lives that the miners led during the gold rush. Being the oldest of three brothers, the interview really struck a nerve with me. I sometimes go many months, and will likely at some point in my life go years, without seeing my brothers. Yet, however far we drift and however long our absence, it is always the same when we get back together. We might bicker and squabble, but I will always gladly take a bullet for them. Wes Anderson’s The Darjeeling Limited achieves a brilliant depiction of this relationship, and I strived to achieve similar with this story, albeit with two brothers rather than three (it’s a short story and I wanted to keep it simple). Interestingly, I found that there was such a huge influx of Cornish people to California that many towns and villages still have pasty shops to this day! I find this quite funny amidst all the glamour, celebrity and technology giants. A small reminder of California’s humble beginnings.
