The autobiography told mostly of his early life and travels. The book is known mostly for the late chapters which recounted the Bennett-Arcan Emigrant party as they tried to reach California in December 1849. They realized that the snow would stop them in the northern Sierra Nevada and tried a southern route. They crossed the Amargosa Range into Death Valley and camped at the Panamint Range. Without supplies and out of food, the party sent out two men, William Manley (1820-1903) and John Haney Rogers (1822-1906), to seek rescue. Manly and Rogers reached Rancho San Francisco near Tejon Pass. They returned to Death Valley in a one month, 500 mile round trip. Manly and Rogers guided the emigrant party to Los Angeles.
