Borrego Beginnings: Early Days in the Borrego Valley, 1910-1960, by
150 pages, b&w photos, paperback,
In the early 1900s, the tiny isolated desert community of Borrego, connected to
the outside world by a few winding dirt roads, was settled by homesteaders who
struggled to grow dates, grapes, and alfalfa. Attracted by the annual wildflower
bloom, a few tourists began to visit. By the 1950s, Borrego Springs had
developed into a small desert resort with a branch library in the laundromat, a
tiny airport, and a PGA-Pro-Am tournament.

Time Cattlemen and Other Pioneers of the Anza-Borrego Area, by Lester Reed.
