Romance of the Ranchos

Tropical environment intertwined with the rugged, but gorgeous wilderness, which spans from Redwood to Sequoia, comes to mind when someone thinks about California. It is not just the sheer beauty that encompasses the thought of such a haven, but the culture and the history that set the foundation for what California is today. Romance of the Ranchos is the perfect vessel needed to experience that history.

Romance of the Ranchos tells the story of the expeditions of men and women that tried to tame the wilds that existed in early California. Based on the title records of its sponsor, Title Insurance and Trust Company of Los Angeles, Romance of the Ranchos brought appreciation of California through understanding of its past.
