The Baltimore Clipper ship Frolic
was bound from Canton, China, to San Francisco with household goods for gold miners. The shipwreck of the Frolic
lead to the founding of the town of Mendocino, California, and the discovery of redwood trees. We speak with archeologists who are studying this important early California event. The Frolic
Shipwreck is now a California Underwater State Park.
