Summary
    2017 Graphic Design USA RecipientDesigned as a supplement to standard textbooks, Chronicling California: A Primary Source Reader uses a variety of primary source materials to introduce students to California history. Through maps, photographs, newspaper articles, census materials, and more, this reader examines the unique history of California and its significance today.

    Chronicling California covers the history of California from its pre-contact indigenous peoples to the present. Topics include ethnic and cultural diversity; the environment; business and urban development; labor; politics; and the contested meanings of California. With its emphasis on primary sources, Chronicling California is an excellent choice for courses on California and the American West. It can also be used in general American history surveys and high school advanced placement courses as a tool for understanding the past.

    Päivi Hoikkala earned her Ph.D. in history at Arizona State University, with a focus on Native American history and the history of women and the American West. She lectures in the History Department at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. Her most recent publication, “Native American History and Culture,” appeared in the Oxford Encyclopedia of American Social History.
    Eileen V. Wallis completed her Ph.D. in history at the University of Utah. She teaches in the history department at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, where she received a Provost’s Teacher-Scholar Award for 2013-2014. Her research interests include California and the American West; the Progressive Era; public history; U.S. women’s history; and agricultural and environmental history. Her published work includes Earning Power: Women and Work in Los Angeles, 1880-1930.
