Califonia Bountiful

Oak Glen and Los Rios Rancho

July/Aug. 2007 California Country magazine

The century-old farming community of Oak Glen in the San Bernardino Mountains is the largest apple-growing area in Southern California, but size and success don’t necessarily speak to history. Oak Glen and Los Rios Rancho, by J.R. Sanders, tells the story of this intriguing area. Produced by Arcadia Publishing, the book, which includes dozens of vintage photographs, is part of the acclaimed “Images of America” series that celebrates the history of neighborhoods, small towns and unique spots across the nation. $19.99.
