Eastern Tehama County is more than wild foothill rangeland cross stitched by miles of barbed wire or rugged canyons and mountains mantled in pine and fir forests. It is a land rich with a vibrant history of people and events. These hardy echoes of the past helped shape Tehama County. This is their legacy and our heritage.
Hobart's stories about Red Bluff, Dales, Paynes Creek, Manton, Lyonsville, Mineral, Childs Meadow, ranching families, roads, and lumbering make eastern Tehama County come alive. He didn't want this history shrugged off as irrelevant and forgotten. So take a moment to enjoy these memories, and don't be surprised if you begin to feel their presence close at hand as you drive along Hwy 36 East and into history.
