Summary
"The travel journal of the wealthy young Englishman, Evelyn Booth, weaves a factual, enthralling, and entertaining narrative that follows his escapades throughout the United States of the late nineteenth century. Transcribed and edited (with relevant commentary for contemporary audiences) by Kellen Cutsworth, Booth's journal reveals his career as a young care-free 'frat boy' with unlimited funds, gives first-hand accounts that involve drunken nights, fist fights, illicit sex with prostitutes, sporting events, and full-blown adventures with the most well-known celebrities of the day, including encounters with famous scout and showman William Frederick 'Buffalo Bill' Cody and the Wild West Cowboys; bare knuckled world champions John L. Sullivan and Jack 'Nonpareil' Dempsey; Fred Archer, the most famous horse jockey of the day, and prostitutes, gamblers, and infamous houses"--Provided by publisher
