Americans weren’t the only ones who wanted to go to California to find gold. Scotsman J.D. Borthwick went there too, paintbrush in hand, for he was an artist. He tried his hand at prospecting, and he managed to find a bit of gold here and there, learning the methods that had been developed as miners refined the ways in which they looked for gold. But J.D. saw that there were other ways to make a living among the miners, and it wasn’t long before he realized where the real gold was.
