The front panel of the three-fold, eight-panel leaflet features a color illustration of a Victorian woman in a yellow dress sitting in a chair and looking at a box that contains cascara. Title text reads The Great California Wonderland And Its Products, followed by Natures Own Remedy, then more reading Cascara Has Given Me Health And Beauty. The back panel features a color drawing of a stagecoach crossing the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The additional six panels feature illustrations of California attractions (two in color, four in blue and white), with accompanying text that promotes cascara as a remedy for constipation. The panels also promote other remedies made by the United States Medicine Co.
