An Environmental History of Metropolitan Los Angeles, Land of Sunshine by William Deverell

I really enjoyed this book because I am a native of Los Angeles and learned so much about my own home town: the history, the development of the city, the problems that came with expansion, why our freeways are weird and go around the basin, what we did to our river, why decisions were made like they were and how our city has become what it is now.
