A tour of duty in the Pacific Northwest : E.A. Porcher and H.M.S. Sparrowhawk, 1865-1868 by Edwin A Porcher( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

That duty took Porcher to Esquimalt, Royal Navy headquarters for the Pacific, by way of a seven-month transit from England around South America, to the kingdom of Hawaii and finally colonial British Columbia. Fortunately for readers today, the dutiful navy officer was also an enthusiastic tourist; we have not only his words to recount what he saw, but also a remarkable array of sensitve and skillfully done watercolors. His paintings captured people and places, totems and tombs, scenes and ships - including his own command, the three-masted sail/steam vessel Sparrowhawk. Her posting in Esquimalt was full of the minor adventures for captain and crew typical of the time and place: she carried mail to San Francisco, bore the governor north to visit what was yet for a short time to remain Russian America, rescued crews of wrecked vessels, and went on the alert to thwart a Fenian threat
