Detailed Description

An English immigrant, Smeaton Chase (1864 - 1923) came to California in 1890 where he pursued a career as one of the state's earliest social workers. He never allowed his career to interfere with the life-long pursuit of his twin passions, equestrian travel and botany.

Though Chase made many famous horse trips throughout the American West, this book describes his most famous journey, from Mexico to Oregon along the coast of California. The amateur scientist doesn't merely ride along, he treats us to a treasure trove of observations, commenting on subjects as diverse as the architecture of the Spanish Missions, the hospitality of the people, and the beauties of a fabled countryside in the last days of its pristine and natural beauty.
