Edited with an Introduction by George R. Stewart. An account of an overland trip in covered wagons from Iowa to California. During the Civil War, Berry was stationed at Fort Humboldt, in Eureka, California, where his duty 'consisted mainly in tramping over the mountains supressing the uprisings of the Indians (Irvine, History of Humboldt County, p 292). After the war, Brown settled in Eureka and served as principal or superintendent of the schools for the next 30 years. His portrait and biography can be found in Irvine, p. 291-4. None of his Humboldt experiences are included in his journal. First edition (first printing). A near fine copy in a very good, lightly soiled dust jacket. Somewhat musty.
