A travel writer for the New York Tribune, Taylor traveled to California via Panama to observe the gold rush scene, recording these observations in frequent letters he sent to the paper, which form the basis of this work. Originally published in 1850, this work contains some of the most descriptive and true to life portraits of events in the mining camps, the California Constitutional Convention, and in early San Francisco and Monterey.
