Short History of Sonoma ebook: EPUB met Adobe-DRM

Sonoma is one of Northern California's most desirable places to live and a popular tourist destination, combining small-town charm, a colorful past, and its current role as the hub of one of the world's premier wine-producing regions. A Short History of Sonoma traces its past from the Native American peoples who first inhabited the valley, proceeding through the establishment of a mission by Spanish priests, the Bear Flag Revolt that began California's movement to become part of the United States, the foundation of what would become a celebrated wine industry, and its role today as the center of a sophisticated and highly envied food and wine culture.The book also addresses such topics as the development of local ranching and businesses and of transportation links to San Francisco that helped to make Sonoma and the surrounding Valley of the Moon a popular location for summer homes and resorts. It discusses the role of the nearby hot springs in attracting visitors and permanent residents, including people seeking cures for various ailments. There are also accounts of some of the famous people who lived in or near Sonoma and helped establish its mystique, including Mexican general Mariano Vallejo, the town's first leader; Hungarian winemaker Agoston Haraszthy, who first saw the region's potential for producing superior wines; and writers Jack London and M. F. K. Fisher, who made their homes in the Valley of the Moon, drawn by its beauty and bucolic lifestyle.A Short History of Sonoma is generously illustrated with vintage photographs. It is a delightful account of one of America's most charming towns and its evolution from rowdy frontier settlement to the paragon of sophisticated living that it is today.
