Los Gringos.
by Wise, Lieut. [Henry A..]

Publisher Information:
NY Baker and Scribner, 1849.

Wise set sail from Boston in 1846 and in the course of his travels visits South America, Mexico, California and the Sandwich Islands. He arrives in California too late for the fighting, but gets into a couple of skirmishes in Mexico before the war is over. Mostly his account is that of a sailor's life and experiences in detail.
