By Theseus on June 10, 2009
Format: Hardcover
This is the dramatic and historically-solid telling of a remarkable life -- that of Edward Fitzgerald Beale.

Beale did it all and then some: sailor, naval officer, military hero, explorer, frontiersman, surveyor, Indian affairs superintendent, California rancher, millionaire, and even the Ambassador to Austro-Hungary!

A cohort of many of the stars of 19th century America (Kit Carson, Buffalo Bill, Ulysses Grant), he had his own measure of fame as an instrumental figure in the California Gold Rush and as the person who supervised the creation of the trails that eventually became Route 66.

Authors Briggs and Trudell do an excellent job of balancing their desire to stress narrative while still acting as sober historians.

Published by the A.H. Clark Co., 1983, red linen over hardback boards without dustjacket. 304 pp, a few illustrations, index, 9 page Bibliography.
