The Rollers of Vildar The Rollers of Vildar
For anyone who has visited California and tried to imagine what it looked like before the freeways, urban sprawls, masses of people, Windows on the Past, will take you back in time, back to 1769 and Spain's "Sacred Expedition" and bring you forward through the decades to a modern-day, beautiful city. I got a laugh in the opening lines of the chapter on Carlsbad's school system which the author describes as "challenging". The picture of the Carlsbad School and it's students was particularly fun to look at, as well. The book is packed with wonderful, and rare, photos which bring the author's words alive. A great read!

Recently received my copy of "Windows on the Past..." and just loved it! Sue Gutierrez has truly captured Carlsbad's history, from its early beginnings to the present day. I was very impressed by how she managed to make her historical facts come to life, as well as her careful use of photographs, maps, and first-hand accounts...a great read! I highly recommend this book, and am looking forward to other works by this author!
