The story of the fabled ranch period of California. It tells how the Spanish Dons wrestled the vast lands of California from the Franciscan Missionaries, and in turn, lost them to the American pioneers who flooded into California with the start of the Gold Rush.

It is a story of Indian wars and revolutions, of conquest and defeat, of rugged frontier conditions that rivaled those of the later Wild West, of little known but historic cattle drives, and of boom and bust. The years from 1830 to 1865 saw California in a swirl of change and turmoil. To show the effect of these changes, The Silver Dons centers on Southern California and the Southwest, and on San Diego, the birthplace of Western civilization, in particular.
