Theyre even less likely to know the name of David Maynard, although they may recognize his friendly moniker, Doc Maynard.Dr. David Maynard is an essential figure in northwest and particularly Seattle history. In 1850, at the age of 42 a financially ruined man, he made the long journey from Ohio to California to restore his fortunes. He kept a journal along the way, which is included in this volume.The journey eventually took him much farther north to what is now Seattle, Washington. His experiences among the Native Americans of the area, the pioneer settlers, and his influence in the growing town, and his work as a doctor make this a great pioneer story. The records of the costs of various goods and real estate make it a valuable historical document.For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.Be sure to LOOK INSIDE by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 or download a sample.
