Originally printed in 1976, Genevieve Magoon's "The Story of the Guenoc Ranch: Lake and Napa Counties, California" has been often quoted by other authors. Long out of print, an Internet search found only 16 copies in libraries worldwide and not a single copy for sale. Now, new generations of readers and researchers can enjoy this glimpse into our past. Magoon's extensive research and collection of unique historical photos document important players in the development of northern California's wine industry and the growth of Lake County, a still-pastoral retreat 100 miles north of San Francisco at the uppermost reaches of the Sonoma-Napa wine country. Magoon's fascination with famed Lillie Langtry contributed to the success of Guenoc Winery, one of the prime movers in first bringing California wines to international acclaim. The still widely respected "ranch" about which Magoon writes is now known as Langtry Estate & Vineyards. Stone House Historical Society Hidden Valley Lake, California - 2009
