Fascinating history of California's early days! I inherited this book from my father's estate and began reading because it contains a story about "Doc" Standley" (who was my great-great grandfather) "The Iron Man of Mendocino." That got me hooked on the rip-roaring tales of hold-ups, shootouts, horseback chases, grizzly characters and other scenes of the wild wooly West. If you enjoy the true tales of the Gold Rush days, this book is for you.
