Susan Snyder's affectionate, "campy" portrait of early adventuring in the West features photographs from the Bancroft Library, UCB, with descriptions of family outings and solo trailblazing, in the first years of the automobile. Documenting campsites deep in redwood forests, along languid lakes, and against the backdrop of the Sierra Nevada...it's a perfect guide to "roughing it" in Victorian style!
