Summary
"A bookseller in San Francisco during the gold rush, Hubert Howe Bancroft (1832-1918) rose to become the man who would define the early history of California and the West ... In 1890 he published an eight-hundred-page autobiography ... [which] sparkles with the exuberance of nineteenth-century California and introduces us to a man of great complexity and wit. Edited for the modern reader and yet relating the history of the West as it was taking place--and as it was being recorded--Kim Bancroft's edition of Literary industries [explores the remarkable person who was her great-great-grandfather]"--
