About this Item

Paperback. 406 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 6.0in. x 1.1in.William Lewis Manly (1820-1903) was an American pioneer of the mid-nineteenth century. He was first a fur hunter, a guide of Westward bound caravans, a seeker of gold, then a farmer and writer in his later years. He wrote his own autobiography, first published with the title From Vermont to California, then a second edition with the title Death Valley in 49 (1894), that tells of the Pioneer conquest of Americas Far West, in particular the 1848 California Gold Rush. The 10th chapter of the second version is remarkable in that it tells of the crossing in 1849, in dire circumstances of thirst and near-starvation, of the Timbisha Valley, today known as Death Valley, located in Inyo County, California. He was one of several guides hired to lead a party of pioneers from Utah to the California gold fields; these pioneers are believed to be the first group of European- Americans to see Death Valley. Some of his shorter works were later collected as The Jayhawkers Oath and Other Sketches (edited by Arthur Woodward) (1949). This item ships from multiple locations.

About this title

Synopsis:

William Lewis Manly (1820-1903) was an American pioneer of the mid-nineteenth century. He was first a fur hunter, a guide of Westward bound caravans, a seeker of gold, then a farmer and writer in his later years. He wrote his own autobiography, first published with the title From Vermont to California, then a second edition with the title Death Valley in '49 (1894), that tells of the Pioneer conquest of America's Far West, in particular the 1848 California Gold Rush. The 10th chapter of the second version is remarkable in that it tells of the crossing in 1849, in dire circumstances of thirst and near-starvation, of the Timbisha Valley, today known as "Death Valley", located in Inyo County, California. He was one of several guides hired to lead a party of pioneers from Utah to the California gold fields; these pioneers are believed to be the first group of European- Americans to see Death Valley. Some of his shorter works were later collected as The Jayhawkers' Oath and Other Sketches (edited by Arthur Woodward) (1949).
