"History has been notoriously unfair to I. C. Woods, the San Francisco-based businessman and entrepreneur. Woods had the misfortune of being associated with Adams and Company when that banking and express agency collapsed in the panic of 1855. .. Dreamer of bold dreams, Woods became a scapegoat of history, though he demonstrated the vision that raised his business efforts beyond the commonplace." -from the dust jacket.
