Format: Hardcover
I had to read this book for my History of California class. I'm a freshman in college and I don't drink wine, because its illegal (duh!). So I read the whole book, intro, epilogue and all the chapters in between. I fell asleep many time reading this book and if you don't like wine and have no interest in the wine industry of santa barbara don't read this book. If you would to find out more of how the santa barbara wine industry got started by all means by this book and enjoy it becuase it right up your alley. I will say this if I was into wine and stuff I know I would have enjoyed reading this book, but since i don't like that kind of stuu, this book was a bore. i think that if you were doing a report on wine or an industry that has floursihed through the prohibition and politics this would be the main source of all your info if you did the report on the santa barbara wine industry. have fun reading wine lovers!!!
