Francis/Frank Samuel Marryat (1826-1855) was a British author. He left England for California via Panama with a manservant and three hunting dogs in 1850, hoping to find material for a book like his earlier Borneo and the Indian Archipelago (1848). Mountains and Molehills; or, Recollections of a Burnt Journal (1855) is a sportsman-tourist's chronicle of California in the early 1850s: hunting, horse races, bear and bull fights. It also includes an Englishman's bemused comments on social life in San Francisco, Stockton, and the gold fields.
