Book Description:

 In the mid-1800s San Bernardino emerged as one of the largest settlements in southern California. It surpassed Pueblo de los Angeles and San Diego in grain and lumber yields and boasted a burgeoning cattle industry and promising wine vineyards. But as a Mormon commune-the farthest outpost in Brigham Young's Rocky Mountain empire-the colony was threatened, and finally abandoned, in 1857 during the Utah war with the United States.
