Pacific Grove (CA) (Images of America)
Pacific Grove (CA) (Images of America)
Pacific Grove, in the pine forests on the westernmost tip of Monterey Bay, is a magnet for wildlife, tourists, and scientists. Site of the first operational lighthouse in California and the first marine laboratory on the Pacific Coast, its beaches attracted camp meetings in the 19th century. Rows of tent housing that lined the original streets grew into charming neighborhoods of seaside cottages, lit annually by the Feast of Lanterns since 1905. Botanical and biological splendor attracted scientists like Edward Flanders Ricketts, made famous by his friend and one-time Pacific Grove resident John Steinbeck. Each year hundreds of groups use its famous conference center, Asilomar, and each fall tens of thousands of Monarch butterflies make a 2,500-mile journey to hang from the pines in great clusters of wafting wings.

Carmel, Monterey & Pacific Grove: Getaway Guide to California's Monterey Peninsula
Carmel, Monterey & Pacific Grove: Getaway Guide to California's Monterey Peninsula
The only place in the country where three of the 100 Great Towns of America adjoin is on the Monterey Peninsula. No surprise, given the combination of a spectacular coastline; a climate as ideal for human habitation as it is for lush landscapes; and natural constraints that slowed urban land development long enough for political sentiments to take over the role of protecting this unique natural setting from rampant growth. With incomparable beauty, there is plenty for visitors to enjoy year-round. A hike/bike path connects Monterey and Pacific Grove with flowery seascapes to within a block of famed historic Cannery Row; and the Seventeen Mile Drive is one of America’s most picturesque scenic roads. Everyone should take time to stroll among storybook cottages in downtown Carmel, and marvel at how roads always yield rights of way to noble trees. Kayaking, hiking, fishing, boating and other sports are delightful in world-class land-and-sea settings from the Peninsula through Big Sur bounding the region on the south. The Monterey Aquarium is one of the finest in the nation. Lush landscapes and romantic settings have spawned sybaritic spas and romantic retreats in all three towns. Wineries and affiliated tasting rooms abound, as does gourmet food in all styles and price levels. Weather is hospitable most of the year. This guidebook will help you discover the marvels of this remarkable area.

The Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History (Images of America)
The Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History (Images of America)
Facing the radiant Monterey Bay, anchored proudly between Pacific Grove's downtown and famed Lovers Point beach, is the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History. The historic museum was founded in 1883 to house specimens collected by the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle in the days when horse-drawn carriages still meandered down a dirt road known today as Lighthouse Avenue. What started as a small octagonal building in what is now known as Jewell Park soon became a more impressive edifice, thanks largely to the help of community members like Mary Norton, the museum's first curator, and Lucie Chase, who donated to the construction of a new building in 1932. Others, including noted collector and taxidermist Rollo Beck and scientist Ed Ricketts, friend of author and Pacific Grove resident John Steinbeck, donated amazing specimens that remain on display.

The Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Grove of Big Trees: A Preliminary Report, 1865
The Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Grove of Big Trees: A Preliminary Report, 1865
When Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan visited Yosemite National Park, they both called out Fredrick Law Olmsted as a major influence and inspiration for their documentary film, "The National Parks: America’s Best Idea." To celebrate Mr. Olmsted and his contributions to our National Parks, the Yosemite Conservancy, in partnership with Heyday Books, has reprinted “Yosemite and the Mariposa Grove: A Preliminary Report, 1865” with a new foreword by Dayton Duncan and Ken Burns. This seminal book is a must read for anyone interested in the National Parks and our public lands. The first eloquent expression of the need for conservation in 1865 is found in this remarkable and prescient report by Frederick Law Olmsted. No statement since has been so cogent or powerful. Pristine natural landscapes, Olmsted observed, provide people with “refreshing rest and re-invigoration.” They are good – perhaps essential – for the soul. Which is why, he noted, that from time immemorial they have most often become the exclusive domain of any society’s most privileged classes, “a monopoly, in a very peculiar manner, of a very few, very rich people.” Olmsted believed a great democracy had a greater obligation: “to provide means of protection for all its citizens in the pursuit of happiness.” That meant, he argued, that “the establishment by government of great public grounds for the free enjoyment of the people . . . is thus justified and enforced as a political duty.” Olmsted gave additional reasons for creating public parks, including that they are undeniably good for the local, state, and national economy because of the tourist business they engender. His report also included practical advice about building roads and shelters, as well as instituting regulations to zealously protect the “dignity of the scenery.” All of his points are as pertinent today as they were when he first read them to his fellow Yosemite commissioners nearly 150 years ago. But in deliberately borrowing from our nation’s founding document, which proclaims that the “pursuit of happiness” is among the inalienable rights of every human being, and in attaching that notion to why Yosemite (or any other future park) should not be allowed to become “a rich man’s park,” Olmsted infused the national park idea with its most enduring principle.”

Elk Grove (CA) (Images of America)
Elk Grove   (CA) (Images of America)
Elk Grove's roots go back to 1850, when the community consisted of only a stage-stop hotel. In 1876, this small farm town in the shadow of Sacramento became a crossroads along the new railroad tracks. As the railroad era progressed, it brought significant changes to Elk Grove--fields were transformed into orchards, vineyards, and eventually, residential developments. But Elk Grove remained just a part of southern Sacramento County until citizens prevailed in their attempt to establish cityhood. The city was formally incorporated on July 1, 2000, with 72,665 residents and, by 2006, had grown remarkably to exceed 130,874.

Lighthouse : Point Pinos, Pacific Grove, Ca
Lighthouse : Point Pinos, Pacific Grove, Ca
"Lighthouse" is the story of the lighthouse at Point Pinos from 1855 to the present. It is particularly strong on Emily Fish, principal keeper from 1893 to 1914. Although called the 'socialite lightkeeper' in a previous history, Emily was more than that. She was a hero, not a heroine in the fainting but persistent Scarlett O'Hara fashion, but in the straight-on way of that warrior-princess Xena. For 21 years Emily supervised the operation of the lighthouse, through good and bad times, with the help of her faithful companion Que and with the sometimes dubious assistance of 30 different male laborers, some of whom she had to fire for incompetence. She fought extended battles with a smoky lamp in 1895-97 and with a balky eclipser in 1912. At the end of her career, she was awarded the keeper's Efficiency Star two years in a row and the next year, she was awarded a special commendation by the Secretary of Commerce for her service when she retired. In the book, quotations from her log help tell this story. The book itself has about 63,000 words, 124 interior black and white pictures, about 65 of archival value, and the color pictures on the front and back. The plans for the Lighthouse are included on pages 6 and 7. The appendices include a critical date timeline for the light at Point Pinos, the specifications for the New England plan lighthouse copied from the original documents of 1852, a map of shipwreck locations close to the Point. Included in the text are edited log selections from 42 years of keepers' log history from Allen Luce and Emily Fish. There is also a section and supporting pictures on the Beach Patrol and WW II at the Point.
