This pamphlet details a western excursion offered by the E. M. Jenkins Tourist Agency (formerly, Cook, Son & Jenkins). Originating in Boston and New York and lasting forty-six days (from 17 April to 2 June, 1882), this 8,600-mile-long trip by train and stage took its participants through Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Nevada, and California—with visits to various canyons, “big trees,” mountains, parks, cliffs, cities, geysers, old towns, etc. Included herein is a detailed overview of the cross-country trip, as well as a day by day itinerary with extensive descriptions of the places visited, including Manitou Springs, Colorado Springs, the Grand Canon of the Arkansas, Denver, Yosemite, and Monterey, among others. The front cover is illustrated with vignettes of San Francisco, Yosemite, and mountain scenery in Colorado; appearing on the back cover is a view of the Arkansas Canon with an inset image of a mountain man standing over a slain buffalo. The final 30 pages are devoted to Jenkins Agency tours in Europe.
