Joyce Jones gave us permission to publish her book, "Philbrook" about the great people that are the foundation of Philbrook.  It also includes a colorful history of the High Lakes, originally printed in Tales of the Paradise Ridge in 1981.  The file is about 6 Mb.

Bob Colby is a local author and historian, living in Magalia, and has crawled all over these parts in his old CJ5.  He gave us permission to re-publish his articles here.
