Picked this up for a class, it's informative for a textbook. I do not general like textbooks, but this is a decent overview of California. My biggest pet-peeve with textbooks in general and this one in particular is the lack of footnotes. It drives me crazy when a book will quote someone like John Frémont during the Bear Flag Revolt and not give a source to back it up. A textbook is not the be-all-end-all source. It's a secondary source that should give the reader the ability to find an original source of any given topic.

This is a very good textbook in regards to the history of California. I never knew how bad things were for Native Americans in California until I got to this book for a class.

The content is fine. However, the book contained too many highlighted sentences. This is the first time that I have bought a used book that did not meet my expectations.

I had to use this book for a class I took at the University of California, Santa Barbara (History 177 -- Summer 1999). I thought the book was great in certain areas (prehistoric times, geography, and the native peoples), but deficient in others (water development, railroads, Bear Flag Revolt, gold rush, automobile). Also, California's history is much too complicated to be crammed into this book -- the author should have divided it up regionally, or on a time line to allow himself to get more in depth with this material. Otherwise, if you are interested in a good, yet incomplete overview of the history of the Golden State, read this book!
