This was a really good book. If you'd like a history of California race relations as told through it's literature, then you should read this book. I got many literary recommendations just by reading it.

Great historical perspective of some Intersting California events. The introduction of the wild oat in the 1770's to the 1965 Watts Riots. Great for book reports on California!
