Per Oscar Lewis, "Two phases of early Los Angeles history, both hitherto obscure, are here treated in detail: the town's long dependence on trade with the Owens River silver mines and the terrific battle its citizens waged for rail connection with the outside. Both these complicated subjects Mr, Nadeau has handled with admirable clarity and skill". Includes material on the Southern Pacific railroad, and Southern California figures Banning, Widney, O'Melveny, Belshaw, Temple and many more. Rockwell Hunt (1868-1966) was an eminent historian, a prolific author and a Professor at USC and UOP. He was named "Mr. California" by Governor Goodwin Knight in 1954.
