This is a great history book of San Luis Obispo . I recommend it to everyone that is looking for a history that is full of pictures and good information.

This book has the most interesting historical pictures from around SLO that I have ever seen. From the stage coach holdup in the downdown to the train wrecks and refinery explosions, all from a hundred years ago, I went through every page before putting it down. My kids went to Cal Poly (they bought me the book) and the pictures of that school from its earliest years are perhaps one of the most interesting parts of the book. I certainly had a great time reading this.

I am a San Luis Obispo native and Cal Poly Alumnus and this book has the finest collection of historic pictures of the city, county and Cal Poly that I have ever found. The clarity of the pictures, the interesting historical facts and the layout make this book a must for anyone that is interested in the areas that it covers. I recommend this book.

The author has assembled an interesting collection of histories and historical photographs. I have been collecting local history books on San Luis Obipo for years and this is the best one to date in terms of quality of format, writing, and pictures. The history on Cal Poly is exceptional and there are many histories on the towns around the county. I believe the title is in reference to SLO county, though much is on the city and Cal poly.
