Through his grandparents, parents, and other kinsmen, Lester Reed had a closer acquaintanceship with the history of the Anza-Borrego area. His early years were spent in the region he wrote about: Borrego, Coyote Canyon, Anza, Cahuilla, Aguanga, Oak Grove, Warner's Ranch, Mesa Grande, Temecula, Sage, and Hemet. He worked with the cattlemen, the prospectors, the Indians and others who called these places home - even if "home" was only a one-night chuck wagon stand. The author knew first most of the people he wrote about, though most of the old-timers he recalled in these pages are now gone. They included members of the Reed family, the Clark brothers, the Tripp brothers, John McCain, Paul Sentenac, Howard Bailey, Sal Biles"Doc Beatty, Pat Cassero, Calistro, Torte, Carlos Moreno. Charles Ticknor, and Frank Hamilton. One of the chapters of the book is devoted to the Indians of the area and their homesites and crafts. The book is illustrated with dozens of historic photographs.
