Summary
The story of California is the story of dreamers?explorers, gold miners, immigrants, ranchers, moviemakers, farmers, and everyday Americans who headed west for a fresh start. The first native inhabitants arrived 9,000 years ago, ancestors of the tribes who would greet the Spanish in the 1700s. Father Jun?pero Serra later established a chain of missions along the coast, expanding European and Mexican influence. But when gold was discovered in 1848, the rush was on, and two short years later California became a state. After the gold ran out, other rushes followed, from agriculture to industry, Hollywood to Silicon Valley. *California History for Kids* includes a time line of significant events, a list of historic sites to visit or explore online, and Web resources for further study. And to get a better idea of the scope of California history and the lives of its citizens, readers can: * create a **Chumash rock painting** * play the Miwok **Hoop-and-Pole** game * bake and eat **hardtack** like a gold miner * design a **cattle brand** * decode a **railroad cipher** * immortalize their **handprints** in plaster * assemble an **earthquake preparedness kit** * and more Author Katy Duffield tells the rich story of the men and women who, despite challenges and occasional hardships, settled and built the vibrant cities and bountiful farms, ranches, and orchards of the Golden State
