Abstract:

A symbol of peace, strength, and nourishment, the olive tree has been imbued with a sense of history, place, and charm since its earliest cultivation in the ancient civilizations of the Mediterranean. From the first Spanish ships to touch California's shores to the rise of a thriving industry with hundreds of olive growers and oil makers, THE OLIVE IN CALIFORNIA traces the path of this sturdy, life-giving tree as it developed into a California agricultural phenomenon.
