Three years in California; William Perkins' journal of life at Sonora, 1849-1852 by William Perkins( Book )

10 editions published between 1924 and 1965 in English and held by 573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Perkins was a young Canadian who became an Argonaut early in 1849 when he boarded a steamboat at Cincinnati, and descended the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, past New Orleans, to Brazos Santiago in Texas. There he disembarked to journey across Mexico to Mazatlan on the Pacific coast, where he found passage on another vessel bound for the Golden Gate. Pausing briefly in San Francisco, he went on to the southern gold fields around Sonora, where he worked first as a miner and later as a storekeeper and merchant before returning to New Orleans in 1852. Perkins' journal is a unique document in the literature of western America. His thoughtful but lively account of life in Sonora presents the California Gold Rush from a perspective not commonly encountered--that of a non-Yankee who developed strong Latin American sympathies and affiliations. Further, he had a sharp eye for the details of local color and change in a community that was evolving from a rude mining camp into an organized town. His writing provides the contemporary reader with an insight and appreciation of social and economic factors of the time that seldom are found in the surviving accounts of other forty-niners."--Book jacket

13 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This compilation of Dale Morgan's historical work on Indians in the Intermountain West focuses primarily on the Shoshone who lived near the Oregon and California trails. Three connected works by Morgan are included: First is his classic article on the history of the Utah Superintendency of Indian Affairs. This is followed by an important set of government reports and correspondence from the National Archives concerning the Eastern Shoshone and their leader Washakie. Morgan heavily annotated these for serial publication in the Annals of Wyoming. He also wrote a previously unpublished history of early relations among the Western Shoshone, emigrants, and the government along the California Trail. Morgan biographer Richard L. Saunders introduced, edited, and further annotated this collection. His introduction includes an intellectual biography of Morgan that focuses on the place of the anthologized pieces in Morgan's corpus. Gregory E. Smoak, a leading historian of the Shoshone, contributed an ethnohistorical essay as additional context for Morgan's work
California as I saw it; pencillings by the way of its gold and gold diggers, and incidents of travel by land and water. With five letters from the Isthmus by William S M'Collum( Book )

5 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. William S. McCollum (1807/1808-1882) was born in Pennsylvania and grew up in Niagara County, New York. He went to California in 1849, returned to New York the following year and then paid a second visit to California as a physician for the Panama Railroad Company. California as I saw it (1960) reprints McCollum's 1850 book describing his first visit to the West: San Francisco in 1849, a journey to Stockton and the Southern Mines and to Sacramento and the Northern Mines, prospecting near Jacksonville, and medical practice in Stockton and San Francisco. After describing his return voyage east via Panama, McCollum closes with advice and reflections on the law of the mines, Native Americans, the life of women in California, etc. The book's Appendix include letters written from Panama by H.W. Hecox, McCollum's fellow passenger on the voyage to the Isthmus, February-March 1849. Hecox was so disheartened by his wait for passage to California that he returned to the United States without ever seeing the Pacific Ocean
