Two years before the mast : and Twenty-four years after by Richard Henry Dana( Book )

1 edition published in 1936 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Henry Dana (1815-1882) of Boston left his studies at Harvard in 1834 in the hope that a sea voyage would aid his failing eyesight. He shipped out of Boston as a common seaman on board the brig Pilgrim bound for the Pacific, and returned to Massachusetts two years later. Completing his education, Dana became a leader of the American bar, an expert on maritime law, and a life-long advocate of the rights of the merchant seamen he had come to know on the Pilgrim and other vessels. Two years before the mast (1911) is based on the diary Dana kept while at sea. First published in 1841, it is one of America's most famous accounts of life at sea. It contains a rare and detailed account of life on the California coast a decade before the Gold Rush revolutionized the region's culture and society. Dana chronicles stops at the ports of Monterey, San Pedro, San Diego, Santa Barbara, and Santa Clara. He describes the lives of sailors in the ports and their work of hide-curing on the beaches, and he gives close attention to the daily life of the peoples of California: Hispanic, Native American, and European

Traits of American Indian life & character by Peter Skene Ogden( Book )

1 edition published in 1933 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sketches of life in Oregon, mainly concerned with Indians, but including notes on the fur trade. This work is scarce, accorded a "b" by Howes. "[The author] rescued the Whitman massacre captives and tells us most of what we know about Jedidiah Smith's 1828 Oregon journey" - Streeter. At one time this work was attributed to Duncan Finlayson, as in Howes, but it is now generally agreed that the noted English fur trader, Peter Skene Ogden, was the author. However, the story of the massacre of Jedediah Smith's party on the Umpqua River in 1828 seems to be told in Smith's own words, and it is possible that Ogden had some direct manuscript source.
