In this book, Susanville author Sandra Jonas has compiled the history of Isaac Roop and the Arnold family and the town that began as Rooptown - which eventually was renamed for Isaac's daughter, Susan. Jonas' tremendous research efforts have paid off, capturing the history of the birth of a town and the founders of Susanville, California. This fascinating tale not only follows Isaac Roop and his dream of having a trading post of his own along the emigrant trail, but also looks at the contributions the Arnold family made in helping develop new business ventures, public service and politics during the California Gold Rush. A wonderful addition to the history of northern California. Illustrated with black and white photos. Paperbound: 257 pages: 5.5 x 8.5"
