In the Sierras, with only men about and no water near, this poor lady became a mother! `With no one near to help, comfort or relieve, God only knows the fear and agony of that dreadful time.' There is, of course, much Indian material, as well as reminiscences of the early days and life in California." Eberstadt Modern Overlands 245. Very scarce in the first edition.
