Includes map of Santa Cruz Island with place names. Goodyear visited the east end of the island as well as the central and western portions from May 8-27, 1889. “...we went to Smuggler’s Cove where they were building a new house, as yet unfinished, and where there is a young planting of fig and olive trees, and a vineyard.” “ The rocks, all the way down from the ranch to the harbor are volcanic in origin, except some calcareous tufa, which furnish material for lime.” “On the left bank of the Cañada del Puerto, about 1/8 mile northerly from the Middle Ranch House, there is a rather heavy body of moderately fine-grained sandstone enclosed in the volcanic breccias, and it is from here that the stone was taken which has been used in facing the corners of one or two of the buildings at that ranch.” Thanks are due to Mr. Justinian Caire, proprietor, and Mr. Jules Moullet, superintendent of the island, for having freely placed at my disposal every possible means that could assist me in my work.”
