1908. Disbound . BINDING/CONDITION: This is strictly a working copy, and if it were mine, I would dismantle it further. The binding is gone; and the preliminary text pages are in very poor condition with tears and brittle paper. The map paper is of better quality. However, it requires two people to unfold a map as-is, with them bound into the book, and it's not easy then. It appears to me that other than the index and one other, most of the maps have never been opened. The index map has some damage -- sadly some caused by me trying to get an idea of what was what. I tried to open it alone. Don't do that. Maps are all verified as being present (they are numbered). 60th Congress 2d Session 1908-1909; House Documents Vol. 24; Examination and Survey of Sacramento River. Since this copy is disbound, much of the information is missing; assuming this published by the Government Printing House; the only thing that remains of the original spine is a strip with the text ''A P Davis''. The book, when whole consist ... Read more

  • Edition: 1st Edition
  • Quantity available: 1
Fresno, California: Pioneer Publishing, 1980. Hardbound . 1st Edition. BINDING/CONDITION: green cloth with gilt; owner's name on the front endpaper, otherwise in Good+ condition; no dust jacket. Several black and white photo illustrations. ''One mans' story told through the company he kept.'' The book title comes from advice from the author's cousin: ''Always remember the good shots you make huntin' and forget the misses. Some with people. Remember the good 'uns; forget the bastards.'' Jackson bequeaths to readers and friends his ''main estate'', his memory of people. His good 'uns range from hobos to executives, swine growers to cow buyers, educators to entertainers, politicians and bankers to athletes and scientists. All share at least two traits: they shaped farm policy in California, and they touched Bud Jackson's life. Jackson was an organizer of the Tulare-Kings County Cattlemen's Association, and went on to manage the California Farm Bureau Marketing Association. 8vo (about 8.75 inches tall) 272 pa ... Read more

In 1942, the government ordered the removal of about 108,000 of these people from their homes, and place them in 10 relocation centers in 7 different states. There were, in fact, two Tule Lake centers; the first was opened as a relocation center in May 1942; the second emerged from the first in 1943, and was known as a segregation center. Although they occupied the same location, the same buildings, and made use of the same facilities, the operational purposes and objectives of the two centers differed significantly.
