Despite getting out some fairly good hauls of several pounds of gold a day, like most jayhawkers, Dow eventually had no fortune to show for it.But Dow Stephens does have one whale of a story to tell and he was successful in some of his business dealings.

In his simple prose (misspellings retained), he conveys the hardships, excitement, and once-in-a-lifetime adventure that was his journey across the continent, a voyage to the Sandwich Islands, and later a trip up to Alaska to prospect.All in all, youll find the adventurous life of Dow Stephens to be a rollicking good true story.For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.Be sure to LOOK INSIDE by clicking the cover above.
