Audiobook Summary:The California revealed here is not the stereotypical land of movie stars, sensational trials, or tourist snapshots, but instead a remarkable patchwork of out-of-the-way places and everyday people. Former Los Angeles Times columnist Charles Hillinger hones in on what makes each county unique, such as Johnny Heinold's First and Last Chance tavern in Alameda County, where Jack London first began writing his stories. Listeners also learn about the man who flew an airplane long before the Wright Brothers, the church with stained-glass windows commemorating preachers, and the museum with the largest collection of mummies on the West Coast.
