"The Pleyto Hills" is an enjoyable rendition of California history that spans over one hundred and fifty years. Though it is based on fact, it is told in a way that is interesting, entertaining, amusing, and sometimes downright funny.

The Author's Maternal Great Grandfather was shot in the back during the Lincoln County Range War in New Mexico, and his daughter came west bringing the Author's mother who was a small child at the time.

The Hills of Pleyto are located in the California Coastal Range just inland from the famous Hearst Castle. The little town of Pleyto was a stage stop between San Miguel and Jolon in the early days of California, and the Author's Paternal Grandfather arrived from Indiana in 1876, having missed a chance to be with General Custer at Little Big Horn.

The little town of Pleyto is now flooded by the San Antonio Lake, and the original Spanish land grant, which was known as "El Pleito" has been cut up and made into smaller parcels.

This book is not only chock full of interesting history, but also includes a number of true and amusing short stories about the hardy people of the area.

The Author was raised in the Pleyto Hills, and passes on stories he was told, as well as those that were a very real part of his own experiences.
