Book Summary:

This book tells the hundred-year history of Three Rivers, California, from the 1850s to the 1950s. Three Rivers has always been a special place, one of rolling wooded hills, nestled close to the High Sierra mountains. Those mountains feed the rivers that give the place its name. It was an ideal place for the pioneers of this story to settle. The book is divided into two basic parts. The first tells the story of events and places, what life was like for those hardy souls who homesteaded in these hills. The second part relates stories and histories about individual people and their families: when they came to Three Rivers, when they arrived, and how their lives and the lives of their families were impacted by living here. Did they thrive? Did they go elsewhere to search for their dream? The author has endeavored to answer these questions. Book Review: "I am a local history buff and long-time member of the Tulare County Historical Society. When publications appear that pique my interest in Tulare County History, I usually acquire them. The author and her family are well known and highly respected in the Three Rivers area. Ms. Britten's contribution to the area's history by recording the background and lives of its pioneers is well done." -- Evan Long

Book Summary:

Joseph Reddeford Walker looms large in the lore of the early West. From the Missouri to the San Joaquin, from the Gila to the Yellowstone, Walker spent more than thirty years—from the 1830s to the Civil War—trapping beaver in the Rockies, bartering with the Crow, Ute, Cheyenne, Arapahoe, and Shoshone Indians, droving cattle and horses, and guiding emigrants and explorers. Walker was associated with Captain Bonneville in the fur trade from 1832 to 1835, but we have only an incomplete account these years in Washington Irving’s, The Adventures of Captain Bonneville and Zenas Leonards, Narrative. But the twist of fate that threw Daniel Ellis Conner into Walker’s party, en route from Colorado to explore Arizona in 1861, affords us several hundred manuscript pages, Conner’s four-year travel diary, relating his hair-raising adventures with this great mountain man. Joseph Reddeford Walker and the Arizona Adventure offers a superb chapter in the history of the West. Included are tales of the early Apache wars in New Mexico and Arizona; “The Betrayal of Mangas Coloradas,” with Conner’s eyewitness account of the Apache chief’s death; the emigrant trains to California; early settlement; mining operations, in “The Perils of Prospecting,” and countless episodes of action and violence that make fictional accounts pale in comparison.

Book Summary:

I recall seeing a snake that had been run over by a car in front of my grandmother's house. The tires had sliced the snake in half, so that a toad that had just been swallowed could hop out. ""Escaping the belly of a beast sure makes an old toad laugh..""
