Gilt-titled red cloth, dust-jacket in archival mylar; binding square and tight, light stains on top edge. Very Good. Abel Stearns was an early California pioneer who arrived in Los Angeles in 1829, and whose wealth and good reputation made him a prominent member of the community in nineteenth-century Los Angeles. Due to the obscurity of California history during this era, Stearns' history and importance is mostly unknown, but Doris Marion Wright's in-depth biography brings to light his political movements, family life, motivations, and influence.
