Ceres (Images of America Series) Book Review

You can purchase a used copy of this book here.

Great book on the history of one California’s little known cities.  Sitting just south of Modesto California, Ceres’ history is quite amazing in itself.  If you are a history buff, or if you enjoy the small places of the world, this is a book you’ll want for you collection. As a long time resident of Ceres, CA, myself, it was fascinating to read the history of the town I played ball, road bikes, and lived in.

This is a very interesting book.  Not full of information you never wanted to know but comes with basic information for over 500 species of snakes.  Simple pictures to help you understand the snake with a great key to understanding the pictures.
