$19.99 donation, $3.50 Shipping

Their names run deep through local history and lore, adorning street signs, canyons, historical buildings, homes and ranches in the swath of suburbia between Pasadena and Tujunga, where the towns of La Crescenta and La Cañada took shape, along with the unique community of Montrose. Profiled in this book are such singularly important local characters as Theodor Pickens, the first permanent settler; Dr. Benjamin B. Briggs, the founder of La Crescenta; Jacob L. Lanterman and Adolphus W. Williams, the original developers of Rancho La Cañada; and the Le Mesnager family, whose historic wine barn still stands in Deukmejian Wilderness Park.
