"This book recounts the unusual destiny of an author whose real-life adventures directly inspired everything he wrote: His early days of poverty and working with the oyster pirates of San Francisco Bay, his adventures in the Great North during the 1897 Gold Rush, his experience as a war correspondent and a photographer during the Russo-Japanese War, his eye-witness accounts of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and the Mexican Revolution, but also his activism with the Socialist Party, his travels in the South Seas aboard the Snark, and his dreams of ranching in Sonoma Valley."--
