The Wonders of Fresno County California

Fresno, CA: Fresno County Chamber of Commerce, c. 1906.

Softcover. Near fine. 4.5" x 6.5", [48] pp, stapled wrappers, with a map and more than 20 illustrations from photographs. Closed tear to front cover with internal tape repair, otherwise minimal wear. Uncommon promotional booklet detailing the assets of Fresno County (soil, climate, natural resources, towns, agricultural bounty, proximity to markets). The county is described as an area settled by "thrifty and energetic farmers" whose hard work attracted other like-minded people and built a thriving economy. And you, too, can live the dream: "there are hundreds of thousands of acres of good land waiting for the touch of man's hand to transform them into garden sports and bring immense returns as investments, not to the rich man alone, but to the industrious settler with small means who diligently cares for them." Rocq 1900.
