Early Cupertino (CA) (Images of America)

Early Cupertino, California (Images of America Series) - Mary Lyon Horribly written book, but I knew that going into it. I wanted the photos and some info about the founding of the town. It is unfortunately written like a high school term paper. There is no hint of a narrative or flow, just lots genealogical information regurgitated onto the page. The prose itself demonstrates a lack of mental clarity.

Unless you really want to know about the city of Cupertino, give this one a pass.
