Recommends it for: ignorant about history/ CA writers
A lot of people manage to write pages about a lake or a desert. California writers could not compare to east coast writers until early 1900's. Check out Joaquin Murieta (p.163), Celebrated Jumping Frog (p.206), Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze (p.460) I'm pumped about Martin Eden.
