Kurutz 439b notes, "[H]e must be credited with providing some of the strongest `word pictures' of the Gold Rush. His summaries of the last vestiges of Mexican California were all choice. His descriptions encompass a Mexican caravan on its way to the Mariposa diggings, geology of the region, gold mining camps, San Francisco, Indians., river steamers, and bull and bear fights in Sacramento. The German-language first edition was published in Aarau in 1855.". Buchnummer des Verkäufers 73355
