The scattered desert and mountain communities of Riverside and San Bernardino Counties grew exponentially through late twentieth-century urban flight. The “Inland Empire” became home to four million people. Their forebears’ remarkable stories of survival, heroism and everyday charm and waywardness are captured here by historian Hal Durian. Unique episodes in the lives of Riverside founder John North, citrus pioneer Eliza Tibbets, hotelier Frank Miller, historian Mrs. Janet Gould and army general “Hap” Arnold are recounted, along with prison escapes, “desert rats,” murder trials and church and military base lore. The famous Mission Inn’s legacy is here, along with journeys to Rialto, Colton, Blythe, Twentynine Palms and other unique Inland Empire locales.
