The story of Eagle Rock is told in the words of the pioneers and local historians who witnessed the crucial events in the town's development. Bernice Eastman Johnston, author of the first book on the Gabrieleno Indians, now known as Kizh or Tongva, along with contemporary sources tells of the way of life of the native people. Glendale authors Perry and Parcher deliver accounts of the Verdugo family based on their acquaintance with family descendants. Farm life in Eagle Rock is recalled by those who lived it. The selling of the suburb and the rapid population growth and the government that evolved to cope with it, is told in the words of the publicists and residents who were involved. Join authors Eric Warren and Frank Parrello as they profile the bedrock personalities who built Eagle Rock.
