This book offers a striking commentary on the role of accident versus circumstance in history. When tuberculosis forced established Ohio attorney William Henry Gorrill to migrate to California, he left a successful career for uncertainty. In California he was forced to rebuild both life and career. His move to the west took him down a different career path. Giving up the law for bridge building, he began to reestablish his life and co-founded the Pacific Bridge Company.
