  • Bixby-Smith, Sarah. Adobe Days. A Book of California Memories. Cedar Rapids: Torch Press, 1925. 208 pages, cloth, paper spine label. First edition. Narrative of a California girl on an early Los Angeles sheep farm. Descended from a Maine family that answered the siren call of the Gold Rush, Sarah Bixby Smith (1871-1935) was born on a sheep ranch in the San Benito Valley near San Juan Bautista, over the hills from Monterey and about a hundred miles south of San Francisco. The San Justo ranch had been home for her father and mother since 1855. Sarah’s girlhood memories of the place were piquant and unforgettable. The Maine-style ranch house with white paint and green blinds, the old pond, blue sky, and orchards underneath all impressed themselves into Sarah’s memory and eventually found expression in Adobe Days. An expanded edition published by Jake Zeitlin in 1931 adds material on the growth of Southern California from the 1870s to the 1880s. In the late 1870s the family moved to Los Angeles, a place that Bixby Smith describes as “a little city, and there I lived until both it and I grew up.” With Bixby relatives occupying both Rancho Los Cerritos (the “little hills”) and Los Alamitos (the “little cottonwoods”), the families created an “intimate connection of double blood kinship and of business association [that] made the three families seem like one and us children like brothers and sisters.”
