What I Saw in California ...,1848

"We found in the camp, much to our gratification after a long fast, an abundance of fat, grisly bear-meat, and the most delicious and tender deer-meat.

The camp looked like a butcher’s stall. The pot filled with bear-flesh was boiled again and again, and the choice pieces of the tender venison were roasting, and disappearing with singular rapidity for a long time.

Bread there was none of course. Such a delicacy is unknown to the mountain trappers, nor is it much desired by them ... The grisly bear, fat deer, and poultry, and fish - them are such things as a man should eat."
