Californio Connections

After decades of research, Jim Zetterquist has completed his much-anticipated book, Californio Connections. This fascinating tale chronicles how the history of his ancestors in the San Francisco and Monterey Bay areas from 1796 to 1896 has woven its way into his own life, and tells remarkable stories of little-known events that could only have happened here, in rapidly-changing California.  His is a riveting tale, illustrating familiar places as seen through the lives of his Ohlone and Hispanic ancestors. His use of interludes, which chronicle over 50 years of memories, makes this work highly unique. All profits from the sale of this “must read” local history book go to the California Pioneers of Santa Clara County.
