The author combines careful research with a vibrant narrative to bring the county's history to life. The story begins with an intriguing look at the Chumash Indians, whose lives would change forever when Father Junipero Serra founded Mission San Buenaventura on Easter Sunday, 1782. Then explores the great ranching families, and agricultural riches with oil exploration on the horizon. To this bountiful land came a curious mix of promoters, speculators, railroaders, farmers, laborers, colonizers, merchants, and mystics. The stories of these communities and the personalities who created them make for memorable reading.
