Marti Leicester and David Nopel have brought out an Images of America  (Arcadia Publishing) book from the photograph collection of David's father and many more sources. The authors have completed extensive research and shared it with us in each photo and carefully worded caption.

Take a journey along another one of John Bidwell's enterprises, the road from Chico to Susanville, and enjoy the scenery, modes of transportation, occupations, stopping places, summer cabins, the families and the local lore.

Thanks, Marti, David and the Kelly Griggs Museum in Red Bluff for the May 4, 2012, power-point presentation and talk about this newly released book!
