About this title
Fascinating and detailed history of San Luis Obispo County from the founding of the missions, detailing how the isolated area was transformed over the course of 40 years by the (often slow) coming of the Southern Pacific's coastal railway, the Pacific Coast Railway. The individuals who helped to build the new city -- such as J. P. Andrews, Ah Louis, and Chauncey Hatch Phillips -- are vividly depicted as are the SP's machinations as it drove south. With charts showing the disposition of the great ranchos. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos and numerous maps. With endnotes. 197 pages with index.
