About this Item

An as-new, leatherbound 12mo facsimile reprint of "one of the earliest authentic personal accounts of the California diggings." Discharged from the military at Pueblo de Los Angeles on September 18, 1848, Lt. Buffum -- who had come to California with Stevenson's Regiment of New York Volunteers in 1847 -- immediately departed for San Francisco, arriving October 18 and leaving for the placers in search of gold in October 25, 1848. "A narrative of my journey to, and life and adventures in, the golden region of California, during the autumn, winter, and spring of 1848-9, with a full and complete description of the principal placers, the process of extracting gold from the earth, and the necessary machines and implements; a theory of the origin of the Golden Sands; an account of the gold-bearing quartz of the Sierra Nevada; a history of the rise and progress of the principal new towns and cities; the formation of the State Government, and a six months' residence on the Gulf of lower California." Originally published 1850; this is the 1966 facsimile reprint. Totals 172 pp. Reduced from $41. Bookseller Inventory # 004362
