Highly detailed map of Warner's Route, one of the most important early routes from San Francisco and the gold regions of California to Goose Lake and the Oregon Trail.

Warner's route was one of the earliest routes to the gold regions, leaving the Oregon Trail in Idaho and ultimately finding the Feather River and the Sacramento Delta.

On this map is marked the spot, east of Goose Lake, where Capt. Warner was killed by Indians on Sept. 26, 1849....[Warner] made extensive examination of routes along the Pacific and in the Coast mountains, from San Diego to San Francisco, and had nearly completed his map of this previously unknown section of country, where he was directed to make the exploration in the Sierra Nevada, on which he lost his life in an Indian ambush.
