Pattie’s Personal Narrative, first published more than a century and a half ago, is a unique look at life in the early Southwest and California. It is also the story, told in a vivid first-person narrative, of a young man’s attempt to adjust to a way of life far different from that in which he was raised. The world through which James Pattie moved was new and exciting; the story of a young man coming of age is a universal theme. That more than anything may explain why it is still read 150 years after it was first published.
