Summary
"In The Father of All, Louise Publos presents a rich and nuanced study of a key family in California's past: the de la Guerras of Santa Barbara. Amid sweeping economic and political changes in the era of the U.S.-Mexican War, the de la Guerra family continually adapted and reinvented themselves. This absorbing narrative is much more than the history of an elite and powerful family, however. Publos analyzes the region's trading and provisioning economy and clarifies its volatile political rivalries. By tracing a web of business and family relationships, Publos shows in practical terms how partriarchy functioned from generation to generation in Spanish and Mexican California."--Book jacket
