Up and Down California in 1860-1864: The Journal of William H. Brewer, Fourth Edition, with Maps
In 1860 William Brewer, a young Yale-educated teacher of the natural sciences and a recent widower, eagerly accepted an offer from Josiah Whitney to assist in the first geological survey of the state of California. Brewer was not a geologist, but his training in agriculture and botany made him an invaluable member of the team. He traveled more than fourteen thousand miles in the four years he spent in California and spent much of his leisure time writing lively, detailed letters to his brother back East.79% (16)
These warmly affectionate letters, presented here in their entirety, describe the new state in all its spectacular beauty and paint a vivid picture of California in the mid-nineteenth century. This fourth edition includes a new foreword by William Bright (1500 California Place Names) and a set of maps tracing Brewer's route.
This is my trumpet that was given to me by a good friend of mine from high school. I always wanted a Benge Trumpet...it only took me 20 years to get one. Elden Benge was only 7 years old when he first fell in love with the trumpet – a love that would turn into a life-long affair for the Winterset, Iowa native. It was also then that he adopted his first hero, the trumpeter of the hometown band. Young Elden persuaded his family to buy a trumpet for him, and he practiced religiously. He began playing professionally when he was 14 and, years later, assumed the role of First Trumpet with major symphony orchestras in Detroit and Chicago. As a gifted musician, Benge became increasingly dissatisfied with the range of tone available in ordinary mass-produced trumpets. He studied the technical and mechanical aspects of the trumpet in search of ways to improve its playing characteristics. Working with two craftsmen skilled in the construction of the trumpet, Benge began to fashion trumpets in the basement of his home. Through tireless experimentation, he finally developed his “dream trumpet” . . . an instrument with remarkable clarity, tonal range and easy response. Success was due to a combination of specially designed tapers, extremely precise machining tolerances, and special alloys. But the secret ingredient was meticulous attention to detail. In 1939 Benge sold his first custom-made trumpet to a fellow trumpeter in the Chicago Symphony. News of the marvelous Benge trumpet spread among professional players and what had begun as an artistic endeavor was soon a thriving business. Top trumpet players everywhere began to call on Benge to solve their performing problems. By 1952, the demand for the trumpet was so great that Benge retired from active performing so that he could devote all of his energies to his goal of producing the world's finest trumpets. Benge's instruments defined a new level of performance and quickly became the benchmark by which all others were judged. Designed to satisfy a variety of musical performance styles, Benge trumpets, cornets and trombones continue to meet the ever-changing needs of today's artists. Such a desirable reputation is possible today through strict adherence to the same attention to detail set forth by Benge in his basement some 60 years ago. Benge upholds this tradition of fine craftsmanship and perfection to create instruments of timeless quality.16 things about me :D
1. I was born in Okinawa, Japan. On the naval base near Kadena. 2. I was an Air Force brat growing up, and aside from being born in Okinawa, we also lived in Washington state, Germany, Okinawa again, California and then Massachusetts. I've been in Massachusetts the longest and it's my least favorite weather wise. While in Germany I got to visit Belgium, Switzerland and France. As far as living stateside, I've been back and forth across this country quite a bit. 3. Ilearned how to hoard things (especially small ones) since I was little, since that was the only constant in my life (aside from family.) So we'd move, and I'd still have my barbie. I've only been collecting Pullips for about 8 months. 4. I love collecting art books and manga. 5. I've been going out with my girlfriend Jen for 6 years this February. I met her in college and moved in with her after my junior year (2.5 years into the relationship.) We have 3 cats and are engaged :D 6. I went to Massachusetts college of art to major in Fashion Design. But it backfired over differences with the head of the department, and I wish I had just been a fine art major instead, sometimes. 7. I have a younger brother, he has a sweet little girl named Addy. I love my niece, she is funny. And I'm going to be an auntie again around summer time! 8. I LOVE coffee..... But I'm trying to cut down on the caffeine... 9. I love cakes and sweets. Also trying to cut down. (I have succeeded at work! It is no easy task to refuse free starbucks pastries.) 10. I like a lot of really inappropriate things, music wise. Mindless Self Indulgence is my favorite band (along with Dir en Grey of course). 11. I cook the best pancakes ever. No really. I have been perfecting my recipe since I was like 10 or 11. I get really disappointed with pancakes in breakfast shops. 12. I'm a morning person and a night owl...... They have been conflicting lately. And lack of sleep on top of opening at work almost everyday, along with this bitter cold, makes me very, very sleepy and unmotivated. I hate the cold..... 13. I used to have bright purple hair in high school. I sometimes wish I would have dressed better back then, because I had a nice body. I always wore things that were way too big.... 14. I love swimming. Massachusetts isn't really the place to do that, but I wish it was. I grew up playing on beaches. 15. I like boobs XD
When The World Rushed In was first published in 1981, the Washington Post predicted, ?It seems unlikely that anyone will write a more comprehensive book about the Gold Rush.” Twenty years later, no one has emerged to contradict that judgment, and the book has gained recognition as a classic. As the San Francisco Examiner noted, ?It is not often that a work of history can be said to supplant every book on the same subject that has gone before it.”See also:
Through the diary and letters of William Swain--augmented by interpolations from more than five hundred other gold seekers and by letters sent to Swain from his wife and brother back home--the complete cycle of the gold rush is recreated: the overland migration of over thirty thousand men, the struggle to ?strike it rich” in the mining camps of the Sierra Nevadas, and the return home through the jungles of the Isthmus of Panama.
In a new preface, the author reappraises our continuing fascination with the ?gold rush experience” as a defining epoch in western--indeed, American--history.
