AbstractThis book expands on the author's reminiscences in Seven Years' Street Preaching in San Francisco published in 1857. He describes his voyage to California and gives details of family life, social life, politics and church history in San Jos??, Santa Cruz, and Sacramento. He comments at length on California agriculture and mineral resources, and offers a chapter on mining camp life. After founding the Powell Street church, he undertook a mission to sailors in San Francisco, which left him so burdened by debt that he returned east to publish books and conduct revivals in the hope of putting his finances in order. There are several illustrations included within this text.
