Author
Noelle Sullivan
ISBN
9781493060269
Best known for its movie industry, surfing, and amusement parks, Southern California boasts an environment of glamour, both natural and manmade. It Happened in Southern California tells the stories of intriguing people and events from the history of this region-from the first ships to arrive in San Diego in 1769 to the Watts Riots of 1965. Follow a brave little band of multiracial settlers in 1781 up the California coast to a new frontier town today known as Los Angeles. Go back to the Chinatown war of 1871, which some say was sparked by love, but others knew for what it was: a battle over race and money. Learn about the "puppet show" in 1988, performed not for kindergartners but for a baby condor destined to fly wild and free over Southern California's skies. It Happened in Southern California describes everything from the efforts of the first Spanish colonialists to the reintroduction of endangered condor.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Noelle SullivanPublisher: Globe Pequot PressPublished: 01/14/2022ISBN: 9781493060269Pages: 160Weight: 0.47lbsSize: 8.50h x 5.50w x 0.37d
