The three-volume series, Days of Vintage, Years of Vision, is the first documented California history written as a family narrative. The series chronicles the pioneer era of Senator Benjamin D. Wilson, the charter mayor of Los Angeles and California statesman for whom Mr. Wilson is named, and his sons-in-law, George Smith Patton, Sr., a State political leader, and James De Barth Shorb, whose ranch is now the site of the Huntington Library, Art Galleries and Botanical Gardens. These three men helped establish Southern California as “a world commercial center” through their visionary and tireless efforts.
