Using their own words and vintage photographs, here are the stories of the areas residents and their 100 years of history, from the lost glitter of the Gold Rush to end of World War II.

The stories recalled here come from the reflections of the people who kept their towns and farms running on a daily basis. Among the voices heard in these chapters are Healdsburgs Ferguson family, pioneer survivors of the westward trail, and David Wharff, who brought the first chickens to Sonoma County, helping create the Worlds Egg Basket. Through the great Santa Rosa earthquake of 1906, to the devastating flu epidemic of World War I, to the Santa Rosa-Petaluma Big Game riot of 1943, these diary, interview, and newspaper accounts cover a century of rich history in the Redwood Empire.
