This book relates the history of the first California newspaper to be printed by offset lithography and it happened in the Mother Lode town of Sonora. The author's parents moved to California from North Dakota in 1929 at the beginning of the Great Depression and started up a newspaper that for many years was printed by traditional typeset methods. This was changed to offset lithography in 1946 and the new method was not without legal challenges by other newspapers in the state. In the book Mr. Peckham tells of the family history and his experiences working on the lithograph printed paper for his father. The book contains many photos and illustations from the newspaper pages of that era, including advertisements from local businesses.
