Louis Rose by Donald H. Harrison $19.95
Don's background in political and religious journalism combined with his love of history to produce this biography. He has served as a political writer for the San Diego Union, editor in chief of the San Diego Jewish Press- Heritage, and is currrently a columnist for the San Diego Jewish Times. A free lance writer, editor, and speaker, Don continues to live in San Diego with his lovely wife Nancy.
Louis Rose was a true pioneer -- an Old World immigrant who came to San Diego in 1850, he helped shape the politics, development, and planning of the region. Recounting the promise, passions, and prejudices of that era, the book shows how Rose helped transform San Diego from a nearly-forgotten village to an emerging city. It is a compelling personal story within an evocative frontier setting.
