The King and Queen of Malibu
The King and Queen of Malibu The True Story of the Battle for Paradise By Randall, David K. Book - 2016

This brief but riveting book follows the life of Frederick and May Rindge following their departure from Cambridge, Mass and their purchase of an enormous ranch which consisted of virtually all of Malibu. The story of the fantastically wealthy couple and their efforts to maintain their ranch in the face of enormous population growth early in the 20th century is informative and entertaining. However, equally as fascinating is the author's description of the growth of Los Angeles & Santa Monica during those years. I highly recommend this book if you are someone interested in the historical development of Southern California.
