1874 West Coast Diary

West Coast diaries are very rare indeed; especially diaries written by a young woman in 1874 who boards a steamer, sails to San Francisco from Fitchburg Mass. and takes a rare journey all through the states of Nevada, Utah, California (and more); & on horseback no less. The photo seen here is a hotel she staid at in San Diego. There is talk of Indians, cowboys, trail rides, ranches & everything you'd want out of a Wild West story including her time on board the steamer. She was one brave soul.
