From the Preface "The purpose of the present little book, the first of a series of elementary school geographies, is two-fold. It undertakes in the first place to familiarize the child with his environment and to show how his life is affected by it. In the second place it takes him over the world, not a world made up of facts to be memorized, but one filled with strange and interesting people . . . It is not the purpose of the book to teach California but rather the home in California, and its relation to other homes scattered over the wide world."
