The Mariposa Indian War serves as the sequel to Eccleston's overland narrative. The volume begins at Agua Fria in the Southern Mines in October of 1850. Pressure from the miners operating in the region provoked a "war" with the local Indians, and Eccleston joined the Mariposa Battalion. [Kurutz 215]
