Baker & Taylor
A comprehensive reference book on the nation's most populous state provides, in three thousand entries, information on cities, counties, missions, flora and fauna, architecture, climate, industries, historical periods and events, and other topics

University of California Press
This work is intended as a useful companion for anybody interested in general or basic knowledge about any aspect of the most populous state in the Union. It is designed to be serviceable to a wide variety of readers and consultants, whose range might include residents and tourists, high-school and college students, as well as scholars seeking a ready reference. At present no single volume comprehends such a scope as this one and although it treats its subjects briefly, many an entry also includes data not found elsewhere in a single place. Reference to hundreds of books and articles would be required to provide the information that is here between the two covers.
