Scammers, Schemers, and Dreamers: The Turbulent History of Early Rialto by John Anthony Adams

This book will undoubtedly become the classic history of Rialto, California. It is exhaustively researched, extremely informative, and unlike many history books, most entertaining. It is an important story of the evolution of a beautiful location in Southern California through its idyllic years as a small citrus town, into its present condition as a city of 100,000 people with problems ranging from crime and budget difficulties to a landscape dominated by mega-warehouses and housing tracts. It is available from Amazon.com for $15
