For people who are interested in this era, read Fire in the valley, I have never read a book so fast in college, a great read!

I like the doorstopper Fire In The Valley a lot and have read it several times. It hits basically every part of SV history, following personal narratives of major players in each time period. This style makes it very interesting to read.
