Detailed Product Description
California, Whitehorn, 1960, 1st edition. 239 pp, b/w photos, appendix. 
Original two-tone blue cloth hardcover with gold lettering on spine and chipped dust jacket or no dust jacket (pieces of the dust jacket are glued onto end papers on one copy). Very Good. 

With an introduction by Art Linkletter, whose portrait is the frontispiece, signed and inscribed for Dr. Al (printed on photo). Linkletter sponsored his trip to Hunza and had him on his popular television program "People Are Funny" to tell about his visit to to the "Fountain of Youth" kingdom.

There he found men of 120 who father children at the age of ninety, and eighty-year-old women who look forty.
With a wonderful portfolio of black and white photographs from Hunza, a unique little country in the Himalaya that had been virtually isolated for centuries.
