About this Item

Paper backed patterned boards. Preface by Carroll D. Hall. Number 21 of Dawson's Early California Travel Series, and the most difficult to find of all of the 50 books. From James Hart, "A Companion to California": Thompson "went to California in1851 to mine and ranch. Recognizing the difficulty of getting mail across the Sierra in winter, he constructed skis such as he had known in Norway, but called them 'snow-shoes.' With them he began his business of carrying as much as 100 pounds a trip (including the first ore from the Comstock Lode to be assayed) for 20 years, a service that earned him the name "Snowshoe Thompson." 63 pages.
