1894. Illustrated by Alson Clark. The autobiography of a pioneer, detailing his life from a humble home in the Green Mountains to the gold mines of California and particularly reciting the sufferings of the bank of men, women and children who gave Death Valley its name. Manly's narrative stands out among the many written of the days of '49 for several reasons. In the first place, Manly's book is one of the most vivid because it tells the most poignant experience of any of the adventures. It is one of the enduring tales of human heroism. Next to the tale itself comes the heroic figure of the man who tells the tale-the story of the tragedy of which he was, himself, a part. Among his companions, men and women of the Death Valley party, Manly is the outstanding figure, not that he strives to so distinguish himself, but because the facts make him so.
