Author compiles best of Antelope Valley. Big attractions, fun facts all in one new book. --Charles F. Bostwick, Los Angeles Daily News, December 19, 2005

About the Author

Growing up in Los Angeles, Bonnie Domrose Stone claims she was never aware of the Antelope Valley other than the times her parents dragged her to Valermo in the horrible heat of summer. She spent her time at the much cooler environs of St. Mary’s Academy and Mount St. Mary’s College before transferring to Marquette University to earn her degree in journalism. Then came the trekking: Internship at a small weekly paper in Green Lake, Wisconsin; copy girl at the Santa Monica Evening Outlook; family section editor for the Angeles Mesa News-Advertiser in Los Angeles; Grayslake, Illinois; Family Section Editor for Lakeland Publisher’s five newspapers; staff reporter for the News & Courier in Charleston; special assignment writer for Today in Cocoa, Florida, and the Honolulu Advertiser, Hawaii, and editor of Ka Nupepa, Mililani, Hawaii. When her three sons were young, she freelanced for magazines, specializing in writing about the family for numerous local, regional and national publications. With her first book, Aloha Cowboy, she learned she loved doing research. She burrowed her way through libraries to produce Uncle Sam’s Brides, Campfollowing, a history of military wives, and Civil War in Paradise, a middle grade reader. Her awards include a Who’s Who of American Women, and American Women Writers; International Association of Business Communicators/Hawaii, four Galley Awards for excellence in writing;Tad Quattlebaum Award, South Carolina, for best state-wide feature story; South Carolina Press Association state-wide first place awards for newspaper page layout, article writing and photography; Three National Federation of Press Women awards for newspaper articles. She founded the Antelope Valley Writers, in 1986. Only her mother would remember that she was on Good Morning America. Her husband, who retired from the Army’s Flight Test Program (which had been at Edwards A.F.B) has helped research the field trips for San Andreas Ain’t No Fault of Mine. Together they’ve explored the far reaches of the Antelope Valley to provide you with a guide to the myriad places to explore.

You've got to read this book. Some history/travel guilds are a little dull, but not this one. Even if you never visit the Antelope Valley this book will give readers a look at some of the interesting and fun places that exist in California.

Do you know where the world's largest energy producer is located and what the energy source consists of?

Would you like to know where you could drive through an earthquake fault or see the world's rarest cats?

Are you interested in visiting the largest concentration of petroglyphs in the Western Hemisphere, or seeing the world's largest open-pit mine? How about seeing miles and acres of hillsides covered with gold - golden poppies that is?

If you visit the Antelope Valley area this book is a gold mine of information and history. If you don't visit this area (and I've bought and sent books to relatives who don't live in southern California just because the book is so fascinating), you'll learn all kinds of fun and interesting facts about the California desert and more.

The author, Bonnie D. Stone is an award-winning journalist and the writing in this book is evidence of that. You can't miss with this book; it is well worth the cover price.

Years ago while in high school I would bus to Lancaster to play basket ball and run track and always thought, "Who would ever want to live in this burning desert with its torrid heat, high winds and blowing dust." I now live in the Antelope Valley and am enjoying it immensely because of Bonnie Stone's new book about the Antelope Valley. If you enjoy history, like finding new nearby places to visit or just learning everything about the area around Lancaster, Palmdale and Mojave this is the only book you'll ever need.

The other day I looked for interesting places to take my 8 year old grandson and settled on The "Milestones of Flight Air Museum" listed in the book. It was a great trip. I am looking forward to visiting many other interesting places mentioned in her book. It would make a very nice gift for anyone living in southern California.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is brilliant! I took the advice of the other reviewers and bought it, and was not disappointed. It offers a clear and concise layout which is easy to read; the kind of book you can dip in to rather than read from cover to cover. We are from England, UK and have recently moved to the Antelope Valley for work purposes. I couldn't help thinking there must be more to the AV than meets the eye and this book proves that! It explores the little random facts about the AV that you just would not get to know about otherwise. We have visitors arriving from the UK over the coming months and having read only half the book I have already found at least 10 new attractions and events to show them which I had no idea existed. The stuff about movie locations is fascinating and especially the section about the San Andreas fault (if a little scary!). The book provides morsels of information about everything from the fauna and flora of the AV, to the geology, Edwards Airforce Base, Archeology to the History of the Native Americans, but without going on and on like some books do. If you are not the kind of person who likes to read long boring books about history and wildlife, and would like to know just a few interesting facts about where you live, then this is the book for you!

For the many people new to the Antelope Valley of California, this book should be a "MUST HAVE". It is a humorous, accurate guide to the many unusual things to see and do within a short drive from home and available at low cost or free. You think there is nothing to do in the desert north of Los Angeles? Yes, there is, and Stone shows you how to find those things. People who have lived here for years will also find much information they may not have known. This book will be especially useful for families.

This is a travel guide with an attitude. And Bonnie Stone's attitude is, "How unique is this?" I've lived in the Antelope Valley eight years, and Bonnie has unearthed destinations and facts that I've never heard of. We have out-of-town guests coming from New Jersey, and I bought a copy for them, too. Who can resist a guidebook that lists "the world's only drive-through earthquake fault"? (Yup,it's the San Andreas.) This book's a keeper!
