By The Roseville Historical Society with Arcadia Publishing

Inhabited by Maidu Nisenan Indians for thousands of years, the land of gently rolling hills, beautiful oak trees and roaming elk ran along the lowest foothills of the Sierra Nevada. Where the Sacramento Valley begins to rise up into the foothills, a small village took root and grew.

The first pioneers to arrive came looking for land, then gold. The railroad passed right through Roseville on its way to connect the eastern and western United States -- then came the highways.

Loaded with old photographs and descriptive text, this book tells a tale that spans 150 years. We see glimpses of the people and events woven together to illustrate Roseville's remarkable growth, from a sleepy meadow to a railroad hub and on to a modern suburban city.
