"An utterly extraordinary collection, and I have nothing but admiration and highest praise for the selection of the material, its depth and arrangement.

Jack Hicks teaches California literature and directs the Graduate Creative Program at the University of California, Davis. James D. Houston's seven books of fiction/nonfiction include Continental Drift (California, 1996) and The Last Paradise (1998), which won the American Book Award. Maxine Hong Kingston is the author of The Woman Warrior (1976), China Men (1980), and Tripmaster Monkey (1989). An early draft of her fourth novel, The Fifth Book of Peace, was destroyed in a fire; the restored version will be published in 2000-2001. Al Young's twenty books include African American literary anthologies, memoirs, collections of poetry, and the novels Sitting Pretty (1976) and Who Is Angelina? (California, 1996).
"Impressive in scope, immensely informative . . . this first installment of a proposed two-volume anthology offers a thorough historical survey of 'writings from the Golden State.'"--"Times Literary Supplement
