A list of books about
Riverside County
The Hemet Hotel - Hemet, circa 1910

The following list of books for Riverside, the Mission Inn, and Riverside County, and Ramona is, to the best of my knowledge, an exhaustive one.  If you know of one that I've left off, by all means let me know and I'll put it up.  Most (but unfortunately not all) of these books are in my collection, and I'd be more than happy to look up any information that you'd like - just let me know!
