California Rivers and Streams
Reviewer: A reader from Washington DC:,
"I am a hydrologist and a water lawyer practicing in Washington DC -- this is the book I give to clients and friends to explain how rivers work and what people do to them.

The Age of Gold The Age of Gold: The California Gold Rush & the American Dream
Marvelous narrative history of early California, Reviewer: from Charlotte, North Carolina USA "In my opinion, Historian H.W. Brands has outdone himself with this book. The age of Gold is more than just a story about gold - it is a story about early California.
It is easy to say that the history of California starts with the Gold Rush of the 1840's. It would also be easy to say that it starts hundreds of years before that, but Brands focuses on how the gold rush in California really impacted the whole nation."

It is neatly formatted into two-page "chapters" focusing on specific topics, which makes it easy for him to "look up" whatever he's interested in that particular day.
