Creating an Orange Utopia free pdf

Eliza Lovell Tibbets (1825-1898) was an unusual woman for her time -- educated from a young age, divorced twice, and active in a variety of social causes, including abolition of slavery and campaigning for women's right to vote. But it was not until she traveled to the wild frontier of California that she made her greatest contribution to history: the two navel orange trees she planted in her yard were the parent trees for what would become vast groves of navel oranges, leading California to become one of the top orange producers in the world. This book traces her life from her childhood in Cincinnati through love and loss until she finally found her paradise in a little town called Riverside.
