Albert S. Evans was an American explorer and writer. He published two travelogues, Our Sister Republic: A Gala Trip through Tropical Mexico in 1869 - 1870, (1870) and Á La California: Sketches of Life in the Golden State (1873). The books were published by A. L. Bancroft of San Francisco, the publishing partner and brother of Hubert Howe Bancroft. Evans was editor for some years of The Daily Alta California in San Francisco, lived in the city for 12 years, and he famously feuded with Mark Twain when both were in the city. Evans died in 1872, a passenger on the steamship Missouri, when it burned at sea.
