3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Loud Latin on November 7, 2013
Format: Paperback
Truly awful book about a fantastic topic. I plowed through as best I could, as far as I could, holding my nose at the poorly documented facts and oversimplified stories, gritting my teeth over the notes section (couched as "Bilbiography")'s over-reliance on web documentation as a source. For example, the life of Lillie Hitchcock Coit was constructed from what is listed as "[...]" and "[...]" in the notes. After visiting those webpages, I need to add plagarism to the list of crimes committed by this wretched book, with many sections of text from the website reprinted verbatim without attribution or quotes in the book.

But I may have been able to stumble blindly through the fog of a poorly written, poorly researched book had I not tripped over the typo of a name, Ina Coolbrith referred to as Ina "Coolbirth" in this poor excuse for a history book, published by an outfit called The History Press. If they cannot get Coolbrith's name correct, the first Poet Laureate of California, what hope do they have in getting anything in this rag correct?

After that incredible mistake, I flipped through the rest of the book and nearly gagged on the reductive, assumptive, dumbed down history that does a true disservice to the phenomenal history of women in California. Julia Morgan was known to have climbed scaffoldings in her skirt? Well I'll be gobsmacked to hell! "Apparently the hostility to women that was commonplace in the professions of layers and doctors was not as deeply ingrained in the fields of architectural design and urban planning." Excuse me, WHAT?

This new book is a well researched, fascinating and lively portrayal of amazing women who live/lived in California during the past 200 years. It is a wonderful addition to my own collection and will be a great gift for many of my friends.

Good to read a book dedicated to women. While a long time resident of California, most of these were unfamiliar.
