The story of the Kaweah Co-Operative Colony had, according to Carey McWilliams, a tragic significance. It is also a story that, until now, has remained largely untold. Co-Operative Dreams finally presents this colorful and fascinating chapter of California history with the depth and detail it deserves. A story of utopian ambitions and pioneering spirit... of passionate personalities and political intrigue... of a dream's demise and a giant forest preserved... Co-Operative Dreams is not only a story about an 1880s Socialist utopian experiment in the Sierra Nevada, but tells of the establishment of California's first national park and the surprising, ironic forces behind Sequuoia's creation. Finally, Co-Operative Dreams is a story of incredible human spirit and character, highlighting two of California history's most fascinating personalities: the erratic genius of Burnette Haskell and Annie Haskell, his remarkable and unforgettable wife. --- from book's back cover
