Synopsis: Palm Springs, long a desert hideaway for celebrities, has a history as unique and varied as its residents. From the original Cahuilla inhabitants of the area, to the settlers who were drawn to the therapeutic waters of its hot springs, you will get to know the people and stories that made Palm Springs famous.

From the Back Cover: Palm Springs—for years a desert hideaway for celebrities—has a history as unique and varied as its residents. Nestled against lofty Mt. San Jacinto, the oasis of Palm Springs was the ancestral home of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians. In the late 1800s, white men began to arrive, seeking restorative cures in the therapeutic waters of the hot springs. The climate attracted not only respiratory patients and their families, but world-famous artists and writers who sought solace and inspiration in the palm-shaded canyons. Despite floods, droughts, and tribulations, these hardy settlers brought a modern village into being. Get to know the remarkable pioneers who left their mark on this special place. Learn the stories behind the inns, resorts, and businesses that made it famous: the Desert Inn, El Mirador, the Racquet Club, and so many others. Enjoy a historical, behind-the-scenes romp: Ride the tram, admire the Follies, meet the stars, and discover the myriad forces and diverse population that made the Palm Springs area an international destination.

Greg Niemann, a long-time journalist, is author of the award-winning Baja Legends and a memoir, Baja Fever. He currently writes the Baja Beat column, and a travel column featuring desert destinations, for the San Clemente Journal. When they are not traveling, he and his wife divide their time between homes in Cantamar, Baja California, and Palm Springs.
