Description: This hardback book traces the early history of agriculture on the Oxnard Plain and how the introduction of the different crops brought in new opportunities and new industry. Oxnard has grown from the days that Hollywood began filming on the beaches in the 1920s to the development of the harbor that lead to the introduction to the military to the area. The second half of the book is filled with biographies of many of Oxnard’s prominent families and businesses.
