Melones Report

A story of Melones was told in a 1983 publication by the Bureau of Reclamantion as part of their studies prior to filling the New Melones Reservoir.  Written by Julia Costello, it addresses Miwok settlement, Robinson's Ferry, the Woods and Pendola families, mines and mills of Carson Hill, the Sierra Railway, and reservoirs.
