This book tells the hundred-year history of Three Rivers, 1850s to the1950s. Three Rivers has always been a special place; one of rolling woodedhills, nestled close to the high mountains; those mountains feed the riversthat give the place its name. It was an ideal place for the pioneers of thisstory to settle.

The book is divided into two basic parts: the first tells the story of eventsand places; it tells what life was like for those hardy souls who homesteadedin these hills. The second part relates stories and histories about individualpeople and their families - when they came to Three Rivers - when theyarrived, and how their lives and the lives of their families were impactedby living here. Did they thrive? Did they go elsewhere to search for theirdream? The author has endeavored to answer these questions.

Sophie Britten has a rich background and a deep appreciation for the history of Three Rivers and the surrounding mountain areas. She is the third generationof her family to have deep roots in the foothills and mountains. Those roots go back to the 1800s and include cattle ranching, stock packing, as well as veryearly citrus farming.

Her writing credits include family histories and several publishedmanuscripts. Now that she has retired from the ranching life, Sophie has thetime to expand her creative talents in the fields of writing, spinning, weavingand knitting. Her favorite place to write or use her spinning wheel is in theMineral King Valley and she finds that she is more at home in the mountainsthan in town.

Sophie is already planning her next book; she wants to tell more of thestory of the Loverin family and there is also a mysterious early visitor to theKaweah canyons who needs his own book.
