Magdalena Gorrell Guimaraens has come up with an all new book that is available on Amazon. The book is titled Around Cape Horn: From Portugal to San Francisco.
This book essentially reproduces the personal diary of Henry Edward Wilby that he wrote while he took a sea voyage all the way from Portugal to San Francisco. He started sailing on January 14th, 1850 and arrived in San Francisco on June 13th, 1850. The diary continues details even after that as it talks about his life in San Francisco as he continued selling goods, fought several great fires, and even watched a couple of public hangings as well. The book ends with the details of his visit to the rumoured goldfields that actually changed the fate of this city.
The author was quoted as saying, “I wanted to actually bring the history of this amazing voyage to life. While reading the diary, I was intrigued myself at the harrowing account of the journey he took and decided that this was the kind of story that the world needed to read and I am happy to see how it all shaped out.”
San Francisco was almost a deserted city until someone wrote in the newspaper about the possibility of gold fields being present in California. This led to a massive rush and the future and fate of this city changed completely. Sending the opportunity to sell goods and merchandise to the gold miners, Henry Edwards’ father wanted to do business here and this led Henry to take this epic trip.
To know more about the details of this amazing voyage and the detailed account of what happened there and the real and raw history of San Francisco, one can buy this book.
