Oh California! The sweeping history of the edge of America, compressed into a relatively short volume. As a single volume, you lose a huge amount, but you still get a lot: I was vaguely aware of the founding mythos and history of the state, but there's a lot between 1860 and 1990 that I didn't know, or didn't know much about. It will leave you wanting more -- whether that is frustrating or exciting is up to you.
