* "Benicia author happy with first book" (2016-07-22, timesheraldonline.com) [archive.is/mbJr7] [begin excerpt]:
Smith recently unveiled “Stepping Stones: The Story of San Pablo, Last Small Town in the Bay.”
“I’m happy with it,” Smith said by phone Wednesday, preparing for his July 30 book release and signing at the Blume House Museum, 13831 San Pablo Ave., in San Pablo.
Seems Smith had a mutual acquaintance with the San Pablo Historical Society, a nonprofit with “these voluminous archives they wanted to turn into a book,” said Smith, whose proposal was accepted in 2012.
It took Smith a year and a half to write as he researched archives and interviewed old-timers, waiting about 2 1/2 years for the book to get published into a 150-page paperback loaded with vintage photographs.
The book follows San Pablo’s evolution from a Huchuin Indian village to Mexican rancho to a town that resisted the push to incorporate as a city until 1949. San Pablo was named an “All-American City” in 1975 and 2014 by the National Urban League.
The Contra Costa County town “is a nice little place that reminds me a little bit of Benicia,” Smith said. “Similar population, similar village-like aspects, and it stayed small.”
San Pablo, continued Smith, “tells a story that is representative of a lot of the aspects of the bay, the history of the bay in general, in different phases.”
Deeming himself “a California history nut,” Smith said he enjoyed researching the different Ohlone Tribes in the area, plus the “changes in attitude and laws about gambling. San Pablo was very much in the center of that.” [...]
Smith praised book editor Jannie Dresser of Crockett, founder of Sugartown Press, and the layout of the book.
“It has a wealth of fascinating photographs and anecdotes that have never been published,” Victor Manning, historical society president, said in a press release.
“The town has been a mirror for a terrific array of Bay Area history over the past three centuries, sometime as the site of change and sometimes as the product of it,” Smith said. [end excerpt]
