Excerpt from From the Pacific to the Atlantic: Being an Account of a Journey Overland From Eureka, Humboldt Co., California, to Webster, Worcester Co., Mass., With a Horse, Carriage, Cow and Dog

The world is full of books of travel, adventure and romance, which have covered almost every conceivable portion of the known world; most of which have been written by men of cul ture, leisure and wealth. Every land has been visited, every tribe and kindred of people have been portrayed, and the people made richer in the stores of knowledge derived from their perusal. In the accompanying pages will be found a detail of travel, novel in its character, performed by a common man, Of but or dinary schooling, of ajourney across the American continent, overland and on foot, accompanied by a horse, wagon, cow and' dog. Perhaps, such a journey will never be taken again; especially, with a prospect of meeting with such impediments as beset his path from the nature of the roads, the means of cross ing unbridged rivers, and the prospec't of violence from the beasts of the forest, and the untamed nature Of the Indian. In this volume, no attempt has been made to give a full description of the various States passed through, or an elaborate account of the products of agriculture, mining or manufacturing aecom plished in the western wilds of the American nation. Nor has an attempt been made to eloquently describe the habits and cus toms of the people. The story of his travels is told in his own language, as near as possible, to make a continuous narrative. Some of his descriptions of scenes passed through are unique, told in as few common-place words as possible. Particular stress has been given to the conversations with those whom he.
