The Lost And Found Journal Of A Miner 49er
By: Jack DublinIn 2013, Jack Dublin and family traveled to the Grand Canyon for a week of whitewater rafting on the Colorado River. When a monsoon rolled in, forcing them to higher ground, they sheltered in a cave unseen for nearly 150 years. What they found inside—several journals from the time of the Gold Rush—upended mainstream views of North American history, leading one authority to call the journals “the greatest manuscript discovery since the Dead Sea Scrolls.”

Book DescriptionIn The Lost and Found Journal of a Miner 49er, Vol. 1, Jack Dublin charms us into a world of folklore stretching from the outback of Australia to the Island of California. Along the way, we encounter mythical creatures, from wish-granting mermaids and red-haired giants, to talking coyotes and a dreadful Canyon Sphinx. We relive exploits of powerful rulers and infamous outlaws, who (though their names be lost to history) entangle themselves in our memories with the likes of Abe Lincoln and Billy the Kid.
At times the stories echo the folksy muse of Mark Twain, while at others they resonate the full-bloomed fantasy of Hans Christian Anderson. By journal's end, we have wrestled a history far different from that taught in classrooms; but with our faith deepened, we press on... our imaginations ablaze for the next adventure.
