Foreword by Dr Kevin Starr, State Librarian of California, emeritus


The olive tree, Olea europea L., is not native to California or the United States. This book tells the story of how these trees arrived in California to become a beloved part of the landscape and how succeeding groups of immigrant peoples built two great California industries with them.
