Rancho Los Alamitos: Ever Changing, Always the Same

Rancho Los Alamitos: Ever Changing, Always the Same

by Claudia Jurmain, David Lavender, and Larry L. Meyer with Foreword by Kevin Starr

Unearth the storied legacy of Southern California

In elegant detail, Rancho Los Alamitos explores this evolving land and its inhabitants. Through letters, diaries, ledgers, and historic photos, the story of Southern California is powerfully illustrated.

Rancho Los Alamitos has always been a place of gathering, a home of new beginnings for those with dreams tied to a generous land. Rooted in its resilient diversity, the place has retained the distinctive flavor and grace of an older California while living in the times. This is Rancho Los Alamitos – ever changing, always the same.
