about this item

T. S. Hawkins led an astounding life. Born in 1836, he grew up just down the way from Mark Twain in Missouri, in a log cabin. He became a teacher at age 17, and owned his own general store at 21. A few years later, he set out in a covered wagon, and made his way across the plains to California. He and some other farmers got together and founded the town of Hollister, and Hawkins went on to build a hospital in his granddaughter’s name. It stands today. His whole life is related in a self-published autobiography, Some Recollections of a Busy Life. He printed a few hundred copies of this book in 1913, and it’s been out of print since then.
