"California 1850, A Snapshot in Time" stands out as a unique, artfully researched "Must Read" entry into the family of literary ventures dedicated to California's early history. "Unique" in that Janice Marschner has focused on the colorful and action-filled events which launched California into statehood exactly 150 years ago. The author has fleshed out the swirl of activities taking place in "Year One" of the evolution of annual events which have brought us to the exciting California State sequecentennial celebrations of the year 2000. How incredibly timely for such a beautifully written and superbly illustrated masterpiece of Western history.

One great travel idea is to keep this book in your car; then you've got a quick history guide wherever you travel throughout the Golden State.
