Fortuna & the Eel River Valley

Fortuna & the Eel River Valley


By Alex Service & Susan O’Hara. “Nestled along the Eel River in Northern California’s Humboldt County, Fortuna has changed and grown according to economic and historical forces. Harvesting, milling, and shipping of redwood lumber provided the economic mainstay for nearly 100 years. The fertile Eel River Valley became known for its apples, potatoes, and a large dairy industry.” As with all books in this series, Fortuna & the Eel River Valley is illustrated with many vintage photos.
