 Pacific Eldorado: A History of Greater California

pacific eldorado

Please join us for an evening with the author of the first California history text to see the state in relation to its place at the edge of the American continent.

Hear California’s history described in a whole new western light.

“Pacific Eldorado is an innovative and compelling account of California history, and it also offers so much more than a standard textbook.  Thomas Osborne has brilliantly placed California in its ‘greater’ geographic and historical setting—the Pacific Basin—and he has done so in a highly accessible way for students and scholars.  This is a tremendous achievement.”

—David Igler, University of California, Irvine


 Thomas J. Osborne is Emeritus Professor of History at Santa Ana College, where he received the inaugural Distinguished Faculty Lecturer Award. He earned his Ph.D in history from Claremont Graduate University and is the author and co-author of several scholarly books, articles and reviews, including Paths to the Present: Thoughts on the Contemporary Relevance of America's Past (co-authored with Fred R. Mabbutt) and"Empire Can Wait:" American Opposition to Hawaiian Annexation, 1893-1898.
