    Arax , Mark and Rick Wartzman
    THE KING OF CALIFORNIA: J.G. Boswell and the Making of a Secret American Empire.

    Edition: First printing.

    New York: Public Affairs, (2003.) dj. Hardcover first edition - Selected as one of the best books of 2003 by the San Francisco Chronicle, which described it thus: ' Most people have probably never heard of Jim Boswell, and that's just the way he likes it. If not for years of shoe-leather journalism from Mark Arax and Rick Wartzman, the Boswell agricultural dynasty might even now be a shadowy entity, known mostly through its gravitational pull on other bodies -- especially legislative ones. In this landmark and improbably entertaining book, the Boswell Co. now stands revealed for what it is: the dark matter of 20th century California history.'

In this landmark and improbably entertaining book, the Boswell Co. now stands revealed for what it is: the dark matter of 20th century California history.' In a National Public Radio interview , the authors described both how difficult it was to get Boswell to tell his side of the story, and how unprecedented it was to have this access - but Boswell did not like the title. An almost incredible story about a family who was responsible for shaping so much of California's growth- and who still controls what is more valuable than gold to the state: its water. 558 pages. Map endpapers. ISBN: 1-58648-0286.

It seeks to describe that progress as accurately and dispassionately as possible, and to avoid loose generalizations and willful exaggeration. It is not designed to serve as a handbook for the sale of California real estate. The size of the state, its rich and varied resources, and the unusual lines along which its economic development has proceeded, eminently justify an authentic study of this kind. In the transformation of any region from a wilderness to an empire-in the coming of settlers, the planting of fields, the opening of mines, the felling of forests, the building of cities, the operation of factories, the interplay of commerce, the growth of population-there is not only fascination and human interest; there is also the most genuine stuff of which history can be made." A title in the series 'Calfornia' under the general editorship of John Russell McCarthy. Very attractively illustrated with woodcuts by Aries Fayer. Page with printed signatures of California pioneers - 'covered wagon babies' who were born on the trail in 1848, 1849 or the 1850's. Also includes several appendices dealing with Mexican Land Grants, statistical charts, many maps. Index. 322 pp .

Each manipulation of nature increased the amount of food our species could produce. The result is the Big Ratchet of the twentieth century, and today's explosion of mouths to feed, meat-laden diets, overcrowded cities, and the irony of overweight populations with too much food in some countries, while others starve."

From the introduction: "Work and play in a nice proportion are mixed in the Short Courses of our American agricultural colleges. Clifford Davison found time for both. In the class room he met inspired teachers who not only taught him practical facts but spurred him on to make the most of his splendid opportunities. In his contact with the student body he met not only other Short Horns but regular university men as well, and from these, too, he learned many things not found in books. Our great universities in which high brow and agric are mixed indiscriminately are melting pots and levelers, foundation stones of American democracy; and Clifford Davison took back with him to the farm new knowledge, new outlooks, and new dreams." Illustrated with a glossy frontispiece and four internal glossy plates by R.L. Boyer. Quite uncommon. 330 pp.
