Discover the History of Olives in California’s Gold Country

Calaveras County, Ca...The newest addition to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America series is Olives in California’s Gold Country by Salvatore Manna and Terry Beaudoin. The book boasts more than 200 vintage images and memories of the olive in the Gold Country. The history of the olive in the Gold Country of Northern California is a story of the Spanish in the New World, of the Gold Rush, of immigrants from Italy and other Mediterranean countries, of bold pioneers, enterprising farmers and scientists, and of businessmen and businesswomen. Focusing on Calaveras County in the south and Placer County in the north, but also exploring the olive throughout most of Northern California, including olive havens such as Corning and Oroville, that story is told within these pages through rare and fascinating photographs. For those who wish to explore the olive in Northern California, whether its history, industry or technology, this volume provides both an appetizer and a satisfying entrée. As love of the olive grows, for the first time a book tells the tale of the olive tree, the king of trees, in the Mother Lode of California...

The newest addition to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America series is Olives in California’s Gold Country by Salvatore Manna and Terry Beaudoin. The book boasts more than 200 vintage images and memories of the olive in the Gold Country.

The history of the olive in the Gold Country of Northern California is a story of the Spanish in the New World, of the Gold Rush, of immigrants from Italy and other Mediterranean countries, of bold pioneers, enterprising farmers and scientists, and of businessmen and businesswomen. Focusing on Calaveras County in the south and Placer County in the north, but also exploring the olive throughout most of Northern California, including olive havens such as Corning and Oroville, that story is told within these pages through rare and fascinating photographs. For those who wish to explore the olive in Northern California, whether its history, industry or technology, this volume provides both an appetizer and a satisfying entrée. As love of the olive grows, for the first time a book tells the tale of the olive tree, the king of trees, in the Mother Lode of California.

Historian Salvatore Manna and olive company owner and aficionado Terry Beaudoin mined the archives of historical societies throughout the Gold Country as well as never-before-published family collections for an unprecedented presentation of the most significant and revealing photographs related to the past and the present of the area’s olive culture.

Highlights of Olives in California’s Gold Country include:
The rise of foodies and the resurgence of the olive industry have spawned a cult-like interest, an olive culture.
Though centered on an agricultural commodity, the photographs and stories involve communities, families and local history throughout the Gold Country. What ties them together is not only a region but a tree.
The research for this book uncovered a treasure trove of previously untold olive history, particularly in Calaveras County.
Featuring nearly 200 photographs, most of them contributed by families and historical societies throughout the Gold Country.
Olives in California’s Gold Country is available at area retailers and bookstores as well as online, including at westcalaverashistory.org, arcadiapublishing.com, and amazon.com.
