KIRKUS REVIEW

A panoramic novel of early days in California, seen through the eyes of one of the first settlers, Judith, who elopes with a dashing Spaniard. After the difficulties of adjustment are met, she becomes a typical pioneer figure, and through her eyes one follows the evolution of California, from Indian fighting days, through the gold rush, to the building of a state. Over-detailed, though undoubtedly a true period piece, but as a novel the narrative seems sluggish and the people are cardboard figures. Local sale.
