Catalina Island - Pedersen, Jeannine L.,Catalina Island Museum Preview:

Throughout its history, the 76-square-mile island of Catalina has played host to Native Americans, smugglers, otter hunters, ranchers, miners, entrepreneurs, vacationers, movie stars, and nature enthusiasts. William Wrigley Jr. (of chewing-gum fame) bought the island in 1919 and later constructed the recognizable casino building, which was never used for gambling but did become one of the best-known ballrooms in America. In the 1970s, the Wrigley family deeded 88 percent of the island to the Catalina Island Conservancy, which protects the natural state of the island and her inhabitants. Today nearly one million tourists visit annually to take in the fishing, parasailing, glass-bottomed tour boating, scuba diving, cycling, camping, galleries, shopping, and dining..

Catalina A to Z - Patricia Maxwell,Bob Rhein,Jerry Roberts Preview:

Santa Catalina Island is one of the West Coast's great nearby escapes, an hour's boat ride from Los Angeles and Long Beach for one million annual tourists. The island's seventy-six square miles contain two communities--Avalon and Two Harbors--and extremely rugged seashores and interior wild lands. Here, the history has been carved by pirates, smugglers, prospectors and squatters and set down by seafaring scribes and Hollywood fabricators. The facts have been massaged by the ebb and flow of time and scattered like sun-baked rocks from a beachcomber's kick. Co-authors Patricia Maxwell, Bob Rhein and Jerry Roberts have collected Catalina's basic facts and lore into a quick reference that's as easily accessible as the most charming of California's Channel Islands..

Treasures of the Santa Catalina Mountains - Robert E. Zucker Preview:

The famous legend of the Iron Door Mine, a forgotten mission and a lost city somewhere in the Santa Catalina Mountains, north of Tucson, Arizona, has lured prospectors and treasure hunters for hundreds of years. The discoveries of early Spanish placer mining sites, stone ruins, and stories of the mountains only fueled speculation about the riches still left behind. Common knowledge among the locals eventually gained legendary status. Even more surprising was the abundance in gold, silver, and copper etched into the mountains. These stories became embedded in Arizona’s early history and were spun into some sensational legends and featured in numerous literary and film adventures. "Treasures of the Santa Catalina Mountains" explores the legends and history of the Catalinas, compiled from out-of-print books, magazines, newspapers and recollections from local prospectors. More than 430 pages and over 1,200 references..

Catalina by Air - Jeannine L. Pedersen,Catalina Island Museum Preview:

For years, reaching the paradise destination of Santa Catalina Island, located miles out in the Pacific Ocean, was possible primarily by steamship. But as early as 1912, the first amphibious airplane landed in Avalon Bay, and the first air-passenger service was introduced in 1919. Seaplane service thrived on Catalina, and aircraft engine roars became a distinctive memory for many residents, along with the thrill of crossing the channel by plane and landing on the water. The “Airport in the Sky” opened in 1946, with United Airlines operating DC-3s, followed by other airlines operating land-based planes. Today helicopters carry passengers across the San Pedro Channel in less than 15 minutes. This unique photographic history covers public air transportation to and from Southern California’s iconic island, featuring memories and stories from residents, visitors, and airline employees..

Catalina - Liska Jacobs Preview:

A magnetic, provocative debut novel chronicling a young woman’s downward spiral following the end of an affair Elsa Fisher is headed for rock bottom. At least, that’s her plan. She has just been fired from MoMA on the heels of an affair with her married boss, and she retreats to Los Angeles to blow her severance package on whatever it takes to numb the pain. Her abandoned crew of college friends (childhood friend Charlotte and her wayward husband, Jared; and Elsa’s ex-husband, Robby) receive her with open arms, and, thinking she’s on vacation, a plan to celebrate their reunion on a booze-soaked sailing trip to Catalina Island. But Elsa doesn’t want to celebrate. She is lost, lonely, and full of rage, and only wants to sink as low as the drugs and alcohol will take her. On Catalina, her determined unraveling and recklessness expose painful memories and dark desires, putting everyone in the group at risk. With the creeping menace of Patricia Highsmith and the bender-chic of Bret Easton Ellis, Liska Jacobs brings you inside the mind of an angry, reckless young woman hell-bent on destruction—every page taut with the knowledge that Elsa’s path does not lead to a happy place. Catalina is a compulsive, deliciously dark exploration of beauty, love, and friendship, and the sometimes toxic desires that drive us..

This book examines Vida y sucesos de la Monja Alférez as a form of autobiography through a comparative study with early-modern secular life narratives. Two questions are addressed. How is Vida y sucesos similar to or different from picaresque novels, chronicles of the New World and soldiers’ narratives? How are the similarities and differences between Vida y sucesos and these forms of writing related to theoretical parameters for an autobiography? This book argues that Vida y sucesos should be considered as a form of autobiography, with the understanding that autobiography is an intersubjective and hybrid form or a forma fronteriza..

Take Control of Upgrading to Catalina - Joe Kissell Preview:

Make a painless move to macOS 10.15! Updated 10/07/2019 macOS 10.15 Catalina makes your Mac more powerful, safer, and easier to use. But upgrading from an older version of macOS can sometimes be a confusing and frustrating experience—especially if you’re currently running a much older operating system, or if you encounter unexpected hiccups in the process. And this time, there are a few more gotchas than usual—including the elimination of support for 32-bit apps and certain other types of third-party software, additional changes to the disk structure that may affect your backups, and an unexpectedly large number of security alerts. But forewarned is forearmed, and this book guides you through everything you need to know to successfully upgrade your Mac to Catalina. In Take Control of Upgrading to Catalina, Mac expert Joe Kissell outlines a process that will take the stress out of upgrading, showing you how to make the switch more efficiently and in the way that’s right for you. Learn what you need to know before you begin, how to prepare your Mac and make backups, and be ready to make decisions about questions that arise during and after installation. The book explains in detail how to… • Start fast: A Quick Start overview helps you read lightly or more deeply, depending on your needs. • Take in the view: Find out what you can look forward to in Catalina. • Check for compatibility: Make sure your hardware and software are ready for Catalina. • Back up: Avoid upgrade anxiety by ensuring you can return to the previous state of your Mac—and that you can boot from your backup. • Pick a plan: Go for an easy in-place upgrade or consider a more complex clean install. Find out which option is right for you. • Install: Download and store the installer where it won’t be deleted, with special tips for people who want to install on multiple Macs or who have bandwidth limitations. And, although running the installer will be easy for many people, you’ll find full steps for what to click and when. • Deal with all those dialogs: Your Mac will probably ask you a long list of questions during and after the upgrade. Learn the best ways to answer them. • Do a post-installation tune-up: Make sure your new system is running smoothly by completing important housekeeping tasks and making a few key decisions. • Troubleshoot: Yikes! It is possible that something will go wrong during installation, or that once you’ve booted up under Catalina that you’ll encounter a serious problem. Joe’s time-tested troubleshooting advice will help get your system working again. In addition, this book covers topics such as: • How Catalina affects your bootable duplicates • Changes to Setup Assistant, what the new screens mean, and how to handle them • What’s new, added, removed, and rearranged in System Preferences • What to do if you run the Catalina installer, restart, and find your Mac is still running your old version of macOS • Revised instructions for downgrading to your earlier system if that becomes necessary.
