To give the citizens of Butte county a history complete in every department and reliable in every detail, a full, accurate and concise statement of facts and events, has been the conscientious aim of the publisher. How well he has succeeded in his purpose the reader can gather from the following pages.

The history of California in her primitive days, that appears in the first volume, by Frank T. Gilbert , and the articles on the Fur Companies, Settlement of the Sacramento Valley, and Discovery of Gold, by Harry L. Wells, are the result of three years of careful investigation and study by their authors, based largely upon personal interviews with the individual actors in the scenes portrayed, and are, in consequence, the most authentic and reliable yet given to the public.

• In the second volume, devoted to the history of the organization known as Butte county, will be found as complete a chronicle of its past as it is possible now to gather from the fragments left to us, as well as a statement of its resources and present condition. An idea of the great scope of the work is best obtained by a glance at the table of contents.

Accompanying the history are illustrations of historical spots in California, and residences and industries in Butte county, as well as portraits of prominent pioneers of the state and citizens of the county, all executed in an artistic manner.

The publisher acknowledges his thankful appreciation of the assistance and encouragement given to all connected with the work, and especially are thanks due to Rev. Jesse Wood for his splendid history of the schools and churches; to Hon. George H. Crossette, for his article on the press; to Mr. A. L. Knowlton, for his contribution on the geological formation; and to the editors and county officers and their deputies, for their valuable assistance and courteous treatment.

H. L. W.

San Francisco, February 3, 1882.
