Six Months to Gold: from Pennsylvania to California in 1849

Here is the first hand story of a handful of men who crossed a continent by boat, wagon, horse and foot during six months in 1849. They went by rivers, through the prairies and deserts, and over mountains. They met inhabitants and travelers. They found food and water and had adventures and misadventures along the way. This is their transcribed diary, annotated, referenced, illustrated, and indexed.
