Excerpt: ...Having come to this conclusion, I frankly admitted to him that I had neither the intelligence nor the means required for so colossal an enterprise, but assured him that Hubert H. Bancroft," etc. After a brief interview Cerruti retreated with an invitation to dine at Lachryma Montis the next day. It was a grand opportunity, that dinner party, for a few others had been invited, and we may rest assured our general did not fail to improve it. Early during the courses his inventive faculties were brought into play, and whenever anything specially strong arose in his mind he threw up his chin, and lifted his voice so that all present might hear it. On whatever subject such remark might be, it was sure to be received with laughter and applause; for somewhere interwoven in it was a compliment for some one present, who if not specially pleased at the broad flattery could but be amused at the manner in which it was presented. How well the envoy improved his time is summed in one line of his account, where with charming naivete he says: "In such pleasant company hunger disappeared as if by enchant ment, and the food placed on my plate was left almost untouched "--in plain English, he talked so much he could not eat. Next day our expert little general was everywhere, talking to everybody, in barber-shops, beer-saloons, and wine-cellars, in public and private houses, offices and stores, making friends and picking up information relating to his mission. First he wrote the reminiscences of some half-dozen pioneers he had met and conversed with on the boat, at the hotel, and on the street, writings which he did not fail to spread before General Vallejo, with loud and ludicrous declamation on the character of each. Thus he made the magnate of Sonoma feel...

Wendy Kline's lucid cultural history of eugenics in America emphasizes the movement's central, continuing interaction with popular notions of gender and morality. Kline shows how eugenics could seem a viable solution to problems of moral disorder and sexuality, especially female sexuality, during the first half of the twentieth century. Its appeal to social conscience and shared desires to strengthen the family and civilization sparked widespread public as well as scientific interest. Kline traces this growing public interest by looking at a variety of sources, including the astonishing "morality masque" that climaxed the 1915 Panama Pacific International Exposition; the nationwide correspondence of the influential Human Betterment Foundation in Pasadena, California; the medical and patient records of a "model" state institution that sterilized thousands of allegedly feebleminded women in California between 1900 and 1960; the surprising political and popular support for sterilization that survived initial interest in, and then disassociation from, Nazi eugenics policies; and a widely publicized court case in 1936 involving the sterilization of a wealthy young woman deemed unworthy by her mother of having children. Kline's engaging account reflects the shift from "negative eugenics" (preventing procreation of the "unfit") to "positive eugenics," which encouraged procreation of the "fit," and it reveals that the "golden age" of eugenics actually occurred long after most historians claim the movement had vanished. The middle-class "passion for parenthood" in the '50s had its roots, she finds, in the positive eugenics campaign of the '30s and '40s. Many issues that originated in the eugenics movement remain controversial today, such as the use of IQ testing, the medical ethics of sterilization, the moral and legal implications of cloning and genetic screening, and even the debate on family values of the 1990s. Building a Better Race not only places eugenics at the center of modern reevaluations of female sexuality and morality but also acknowledges eugenics as an essential aspect of major social and cultural movements in the twentieth century.

A world-renowned Pomo basket weaver and medicine woman, Mabel McKay expressed her genius through her celebrated baskets, her Dreams, her cures, and the stories with which she kept her culture alive. She spent her life teaching others how the spirit speaks through the Dream, how the spirit heals, and how the spirit demands to be heard. Greg Sarris weaves together stories from Mabel McKay's life with an account of how he tried, and she resisted, telling her story straight—the white people's way. Sarris, an Indian of mixed-blood heritage, finds his own story in his search for Mabel McKay's. Beautifully narrated, Weaving the Dream initiates the reader into Pomo culture and demonstrates how a woman who worked most of her life in a cannery could become a great healer and an artist whose baskets were collected by the Smithsonian. Hearing Mabel McKay's life story, we see that distinctions between material and spiritual and between mundane and magical disappear. What remains is a timeless way of healing, of making art, and of being in the world.

Robert Louis Stevenson's unconventional 1880 honeymoon in an abandoned silver mining camp on the shoulder of Mount St. Helena provides the backdrop for this wonderful narrative of late 19th century California. ""Squatting"" for two months during a California summer with his new wife, Fanny Vandegrift, The Silverado Squatters provides readers with insight into life in the Napa Valley--with descriptions of the ""experiments"" with local wine growing, his visit to a petrified forest, his first use of the telephone, and the characters of the local people. Stevenson used his memories of this California honeymoon to create much of the descriptive detail found in 1883's Treasure Island.
