Summary expansion
The primary focus of the booklet was to sell farm lands; they were offered in "tracts 20 to 160 acres, $25 to $100 per acre, sold on ten years' time...." The final page contains two maps: the first showing the Southern Pacific Railway line through Coachella Valley; the second, on a larger scale, showing the South Pacific lands, prepared by B.A. McAllaster, Land Commissioner. The land was suitable for growing dates, cotton, figs, grapes, oranges, grapefruit, berries, and other crops
