From Arcadia Publishing by Martha Sharrer Michael, local author and editor of Canyon Country magazine.

Book Description:
Located in northern Los Angeles County in the Santa Clarita Valley, Canyon Country was once the ancestral home of the Tataviam people, who were the area's first inhabitants as early as 500 ad. The first recorded American resident was Col. Thomas Mitchell, who established the area's first school in 1872 with his wife, Martha. In 1876, when Southern Pacific Railroad president Charles Crocker drove in the golden spike that connected Northern and Southern California at Lang Station, Canyon Country's significance as a crossroads community began. The town also became a section of US Route 6, the longest transcontinental highway. Today, Canyon Country is a blend of old and new, juxtaposing hundred-year-old ranch houses with 21st-century golf courses and providing locations for Hollywood's newest depictions of the Old West.


Author Bio:
Author Martha Sharrer Michael is the editor of Canyon Country magazine and has been a resident of the Santa Clarita Valley for 16 years. She tells the story of Canyon Country's history, which spans approximately 1,500 years, using safeguarded photographs from the Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society and dozens of other sources. Her depictions lasso the bounds of Canyon Country's enduring spirit with striking images featuring residents who have always embraced their unique and localized identity.
