Description
In 1852, 24-year-old Lucy Kendall was a passenger on the Josephine, traveling from New York City around Cape Horn to San Francisco. During the 137-day voyage, the travelers suffered many hardships: extremes of temperature, terrifying storms, a man lost overboard—and boredom, all of which Lucy records with wit and compassion. Lucy's journal is supplemented by the story of her childhood in England and New York and her later life in San Francisco. This book, identical in size to Lucy's original journal, has 26 black and white illustrations, including sketches by Lucy and her father. Andrew Rolle's introduction places the journal in its historical context.
