History comes to life!,

This review is from: A World Transformed: Firsthand Accounts of California Before the Gold Rush (Paperback)
In this accessible and engrossing anthology, editor Paddison portrays a pre-gold rush California that is familiar to today's Californians--diverse, contested, ever-changing. The book's firsthand accounts, framed by helpful introductions, bring to life the experiences of the missionaries, Indians, explorers, and homesteaders who populated early California. Highly recommended to anyone interested in the development (and transformation) of the American West.
