Cultural Resources of Jack London State Historic Park
In 1987 the Anthropological Studies Center conducted a cultural resources inventory of Jack London State Historic Park in the hills above the Valley of the Moon near Glen Ellen in Sonoma County, California. In 2007, the report was revised to remove sensitive location information with reference to prehistoric sites. This document contains descriptions of the standing structures, landscape, and historic sites located within the Park. The history of each structure, feature, and site is presented along with references made to them in Jack London’s writings.
Jack London - popular author, avid traveler, and vocal socialist - left two legacies to the world: his writings and his Beauty Ranch. This 1989 paper, authored by Adrian and Mary Praetzellis, examines the common principals influencing London's self-expression in writing and across the landscape.
