California - Romantic and Resourceful By John F. Davis

The author discusses the need for preservation of California historical documents. He also briefly discusses the history of the missions, mineral (mining) rights in the California (and the western U.S.), the formation of California's government, and the admitance of California to the U.S. as a state. The author gives the story of Concepción de Argüello, and presents a poem by Bret Harte about her. This is my 16th Project Guttenberg title.
