The beautiful village of Sunland began as a quiet agricultural center, while Tujunga, at first a utopian colony, chiefly embraced commercial, social, and cultural endeavors. The two once exquisite spots have prospered and united, evolving into a hub of small business trade, close community, and diversified living. The Tujunga Native Americans originally settled this piece of secluded wilderness alongside Southern California's Angeles National Forest. However, it was not until Spanish settlement and missionization in 1769, and the Mexican occupation soon after, that the Sunland and Tujunga area was transformed from a primitive village to a Mexican cattle frontier, facilitated by the Rancho Tujunga land grant of 1840. As the region grew and changed, the soul of Sunland and Tujunga became personified in the hardiness, innovation, success, and failure of each generation of pioneers. Chronicling the region's history from the year 500 to modern times, Sunland and Tujunga: From Village to City tells the singular story of the development of these California towns from quiet native home to inconspicuous village to thriving city. Exploring the growth of industry, agriculture, and recreation in Sunland and Tujunga, this volume also depicts the daily life of early inhabitants who built homes, erected churches, set up schools, opened businesses, and worked hard to establish a strong, healthy community for the generations that would follow. Over 100 compelling photographs highlight the awesome beauty of the area, as well as the unyielding spirit of the men and women who shaped Sunland and Tujunga into the communities they are today.

For many, “going back to the land” brings to mind the 1960s and 1970s—hippie communes and the Summer of Love, The Whole Earth Catalog and Mother Earth News. More recently, the movement has reemerged in a new enthusiasm for locally produced food and more sustainable energy paths. But these latest back-to-the-landers are part of a much larger story. Americans have been dreaming of returning to the land ever since they started to leave it. In Back to the Land, Dona Brown explores the history of this recurring impulse. ? Back-to-the-landers have often been viewed as nostalgic escapists or romantic nature-lovers. But their own words reveal a more complex story. In such projects as Gustav Stickley’s Craftsman Farms, Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Broadacre City,” and Helen and Scott Nearing’s quest for “the good life,” Brown finds that the return to the farm has meant less a going-backwards than a going-forwards, a way to meet the challenges of the modern era. Progressive reformers pushed for homesteading to help impoverished workers get out of unhealthy urban slums. Depression-era back-to-the-landers, wary of the centralizing power of the New Deal, embraced a new “third way” politics of decentralism and regionalism. Later still, the movement merged with environmentalism. To understand Americans’ response to these back-to-the-land ideas, Brown turns to the fan letters of ordinary readers—retired teachers and overworked clerks, recent immigrants and single women. In seeking their rural roots, Brown argues, Americans have striven above all for the independence and self-sufficiency they associate with the agrarian ideal.
