      “In 1849, businessman William Goulding made a trip to California on the rarely traveled southern route through Oklahoma, New Mexicao, and Arizona and kept a journal en route that includes his encounters with interesting and important people he met along the way.  Patricia Etter has introduced and annotated this rare first person diary, and locates desert routes and places that have long since vanished.”
