Bruff's Wake

$34.95

Author: Harold James.  
Softcover, 64 images


The story of J. Goldsborough Bruff's overland journey to the California Gold Rush, his experiences in California, and his return trip to New York via Panama. It includes entries from Bruff's journal and couples a number of the drawings that Bruff made while on the trail with photos that James made recently at the sites of the drawings. Bruff's drawings are a primary source for historians and trail buffs, allowing visualization of what the emigrants encountered on the overland trail. The published versions of Bruff's journal and drawings have, however, been out of print for more than 50 years. James' book makes this material available for a general audience.
