Mysterious California feels kinda dated, and I'm pretty sure some of the information isn't accurate, but it is an interesting read. It collects accounts of interesting and places and surrounding events of California's past. I was particularly entertained by the chapters about Joaquin Murietta and the Salton Sink. Other chapters mentions things like the ghost town of a real estate scam and what may have be the home of Napoleon's exiled widow.

Overall it's a good read and not too sensational, I feel pretty confident that what inaccuracies exist are a result of its age and not an attempt to create mystery or sensation. ( )
