[Prairie schooner - Sacramento Valley]
"Lassens Butte, Sacramento Valley" is the caption on this delicately colored engraved illustration taken from the two volume set PICTURESQUE AMERICA edited by William Cullen Bryant and published in 1872. This engraving is representative of the many wagons that came to California in the 1840's and 1850's.
