KIRKUS REVIEW

Following an introduction about the early explorers and foreign powers in Southern California and its emergent status as a part of the United States, we are invited to a historical and anecdotal survey of each of the nine southern California counties. Each county lays claim to some kind of color or eccentricity- which is acknowledged today in the form of a fair, a local legend or a street name. The counties are separated by chapters with tourist guides at the end- these are lists of holidays and fairs categorically arranged by county and month. The prospective tourist venturing to the Golden West might do well to glance through.
