Notes: "First published at Vancouver, W.T., in 1861."
1861 ed. printed at the Chronicle office, Vancouver, W.T., by L.E.V. Coon.
The only known copy of the original 1861 printing is in the Beinecke Library, Yale University. In 1956 or 1957, Yale produced a facsimile edition of 300 copies as part of their Western Historical Series.
"This publication, the second book to be issued by the Book Club of Washington, is limited to 300 copies only"--Colophon.
"The sole 'editorial' work of the Publications Committee of the B.C.W. ... has been the correcting of obvious mis-spellings and grammatical errors ..."--T.p. verso.
"Complete and unabridged text of the 1861 original printing, plus contemporary introductory comments ... presented ... in a totally new format"--Colophon.
The author "Loo-Wit-Lat-Kla" was in reality one of the men from a prospecting party searching for gold.
Despite the title, this is not a history of gold discoveries, but rather of a prospecting party which was unsuccessful in finding gold and turned to exploring the country around them, becoming the second party to successfully ascend "Loo-Wit-Lat-Kla," or Mt. St. Helens.
