This book, by historians Marti Leicester and David Nopel, offers readers an opportunity to ride the historic Humboldt Wagon Road from Chico to Susanville through images that have been collected since th 1860s. Many never-before-published photographs and oral histories tell the story of this pioneer roadway that, since its construction in the 1850s, has been traversed by horses, wagons, stagecoaches, and later freight trucks and automobiles. The authors mined the archives of the Plumas County Museum for many of the photos and history found in this book! Profusely illustrated with historic photographs. Paperbound: 127 pages: 6.5 x 9.25"
