Book Overview
Edwin Bryant (1805-1869) was an American journalist from Kentucky. He worked on several papers in Kentucky, including editing one and establishing his own; the Louisville Morning Courier. In 1846 he led a wagon train which travelled overland from Missouri to California on the west coast. In 1848 he published an account of his experiences called What I Saw in California, which went through several printings and became well known across the country. He settled in California, serving as Alcade of San Francisco and becoming involved in politics.
