Napa Valley, once known for its cattle and silver mines, has grown into an international wine destination. On the way, many buildings and institutions have vanished. From the Von Uhlit family's fruit farm in Napa to the Wheeler Ranch in St. Helena, fields and orchards became neighborhoods and vineyards. The Dolphin, a steamboat that once delivered travelers from San Francisco, was replaced by faster transport, and the Napa State Hospital's original "castle" was demolished. The Sawyer Tannery, in operation for over one hundred years, closed its doors in 1990, and destinations like the Kay Von Drive-In and the Bel Aire Bowl now live on only in memory. Join author and historian Lauren Coodley as she celebrates these once-beloved landmarks in California's Wine Country.

In 1905, Napa's mayor, J.A. Fuller, announced, "Napa for half a century has been slumbering in a Rip Van Winkle sleep but she has awakened at last." Back then, fifteen cents bought coffee and a donut at the Depot and Sawyer's Tannery made soft leather baseball gloves. In this collection, local author Lauren Coodley reimagines the unvarnished country life of historic Napa Valley through the stories of notables like postmaster Ernest Kincaid, "Napa Register" reporter Phyllis King, firefighter historian Rita Bordwell and Brewster's owners Rachel and Larry Friedman. Trace the region's lasting legacy, from the time when a horse and buggy purchased Browns Valley to the days when art galleries replaced blue-collar businesses and the California grape took center stage from Sunsweet prunes.

To a region flush with the success of alcohol, Prohibition was a sobering thought. Against the backdrop of national events, author Lin Weber introduces a cast of Napa Valley's leading citizens, embroiled in a fight for their livelihood with temperance champions and federal agents. Theodore Bell filed a Hail Mary suit to stop California's ratification of the Eighteenth Amendment. Vintner Georges de Latour made money hand over fist on altar wine. The Nichelini winery hid a cache of contraband under the floorboards, and the Blaufuss Brewery avoided prosecution when the law turned a blind eye. Join Weber as she relates a wry tale of cherished vines, widespread corruption and alcohol-inspired mayhem during a time when "morality" tightened the noose around Napa's prized alcohol industry.

“The 2014 Napa Valley Earthquake” is a pictorial electonic book edition photographed by Northern California artist Marques Vickers of the August 24, 2014 magnitude 6.0 quake and consequential destruction. Vickers 80+ images capture the stark damage from numerous perspectives of downtown Napa, Vallejo and the Victorian officer mansions based at the closed Mare Island Naval Shipyard near the epicenter of the quake. The Napa Valley had never experienced a direct earthquake hit of this magnitude before. The oasis of Victorian-era buildings nestled amongst vineyard laced hillsides seemed somehow immune from the legacies of other damaged communities who’d suffered from the shifting of the San Andreas faultline. The unreinforced masonry of early twentieth century constructions had always been seismically vulnerable. The alluring Victorians failed their severest test. Their quaint charm proved defenseless to errantly vibrating terrain. Napa’s architectural heritage staggered prone from the devastation. A county courthouse, post office, two century-old churches, the historic Sam Kee Laundry, Goodman Library and the worst, the Alexandria Square complex were now fractured and exposed. Gaping holes left building facades and roofing open to the elements. Damage and debris were strewn indiscriminately, seemingly everywhere. The quake ruptured 60 water main and gas lines. Electricity for over 30,000 customers was immediately severed. The local hospitals treated approximately 200 emergency room patients, most suffering from lacerations, bruises and broken bones. Throughout Napa, there was evidence of collapsed walls, chimneys, carports and even a few buckled asphalt roads. There were six reported fires, the most prominent at a mobile home park where four units were destroyed and two damaged. A ruptured water main delayed firefighters efforts to fight the blaze, reminiscent of the water system failings of the infamous San Francisco quake and fire of 1906. While Napa suffered the worst of the damage, there was also significant impairment about 17 miles south in downtown Vallejo and Mare Island, a former naval shipyard. Thirteen Victorian officer’s mansions on Walnut Street suffered diverse internal and external damage. Each shared the fate of detached chimneys littering their front lawns due to unreinforced masonry. Severed water mains caused significant flooding to the U.S. Forest Service and Touro University building complexes located on the southwest sector of Mare Island. Many downtown Vallejo commercial buildings suffered moderate damage as several commercial buildings were temporarily closed for clean-up and inspection. Vickers, a native and current resident of Vallejo, personalizes the earthquake experience with an insightful essay. Since the original 3:20 a.m. quake, over 60 aftershocks have been recorded, the strongest gauged at magnitude-3.6, with more anticipated over subsequent weeks. He observed that within 24-hours, major clean-up operations were widespread and within 48 hours, most commercial operations had returned to normal. He attributed this speed of reaction to Northern Californians adaptive capacity towards catastrophe and nature’s excess. Earthquakes are the tariff exacted for their choosing a desirable and superior lifestyle. Vickers notes the true aftershock will occur amidst the rehabilitation of downtown Napa and for the owners of approximately 200 homes and buildings in various states of disrepair and habitability. In his view, suffering, hope and ultimately reconstruction will create a succession of narratives illuminating human resiliency and the capacity to rebuild and endure despite tragedy.

The picturesque vineyards of California's Napa Valley, one of the world's premier tourist destinations, disguise a tangled history of lawlessness, depravity and frontier justice. Some crimes were committed over debts, some for retribution and others in the name of love. Famed photographer Eadweard Muybridge killed a man for seducing his wife but was acquitted. Other criminals were not so lucky and met the gallows, like murderer William Roe, the state's final public execution. From the Pomo massacre--the first criminal case heard by the California Supreme Court--to the cold cases that continue to haunt the region, Napa Police Detective Todd Shulman decants the crimes of the Napa Valley, memorializing the victims and honoring the efforts of local law enforcement.

As the world rushed in to profit from California's gold strike of 1848, many Jews joined the throng, not necessarily to mine but to sell merchandise to prospectors. Some settled in Napa Valley, a basin of rich agricultural land nestled between two mountain ridges. These pioneers conducted business, making significant contributions to the development of the Valley. Participating in cultural life, holding public office, and leading organizations, many also made fine wines, something perfected thousands of years ago as commanded in scripture. They continue to do so, and this is their story told through photographs.
