AUTHOR’S PREFACE: If when writing the closing chapter of this volume I could have looked ahead, reading in the future that a year and a half must intervene before final revision, such pros-
pective delay would have been almost incomprehensible to
me. And yet you who peruse these pages may smilingly understand how their author might turn abruptly from con-
ventional life, seeking anew the fascination of the frontier.

1933 (First Edition)
The Journey of the Flame is that rare treasure, an artfully imagined work of fiction that is based on meticulous research and brings life to the study of history. A slow ride through exotic territory. On the night of his 104th birthday, Don Juan Obrigon–tall and straight, with hair still flaming red–prepares to tell his life story to assembled relatives and guests. The story he will tell describes his travels as a boy of twelve in 1810, when he accompanied the Spanish viceroy of Baja California from the southern tip of Baja California to Monterey. – jat

HUNTINGTON BEACH — Tom Miller, who wrote the “Baja Book,” a literary guide for thousands of tourists, died Wednesday at his residence, according to a family friend. He was 64. Elmar Baxter, who co-authored the “Baja Book,” said Miller had been found to be suffering incurable lung cancer in 1991.
Antonio María Osio’s La Historia de Alta California was the first written history of upper California during the era of Mexican rule, and this is its first complete English translation. A Mexican-Californian, government official, and the landowner of Angel Island and Point Reyes, Osio writes colorfully of life in old Monterey, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, and gives a first-hand account of the political intrigues of the 1830s that led to the appointment of Juan Bautista Alvarado as governor. – jat
