California for Health, Pleasure, and Residence free pdf Excerpt from California for Health, Pleasure, and Residence: A Book for Travellers and Settlers There have been Americans who saw Rome before they saw Niagara- and for one who has visited the Yosemite, a hundred will tell you about the Alps, and a thousand about Paris. Now, I have no objection to Europe- but I would like to induce Americans, when they contemplate a journey for health, pleasure, or instruction, or all three, to think also of their own country, and particularly of California, which has so many delights in store for the tourist, and so many attractions for the farmer or settler looking for a mild and healthful climate and a productive country. When a Northern American visits a tropical country, be it Cuba, Mexico, Brazil, or Central America, he is delighted with the bright skies, the mild climate, the wonderful productiveness of the soil, and the novel customs of the inhabitants- but he is repelled by an enervating atmosphere, by the dread of malarious diseases, by the semi-barbarous habits of the people, and often by a lawless state of society. Moreover, he must leave his own country, and is without the comfort and security he enjoys at home. California is our own- and it is the first tropical land which our race has thoroughly mastered and made itself at home in. There, and there only, on this planet, the traveller and resident may enjoy the delights of the tropics without their penalties- a mild climate, not enervating, but healthful and health-restoring- a wonderfully and variously productive soil, without tropical malaria- the grandest scenery, with perfect security and comfort in travelling arrangements- strange customs, but neither lawlessness nor semi-barbarism.
