Elizabeth: Good morning, Mr Persich.
You have one of the biggest and
most important construction
companies in Hollywood. Tell me
about your work.
Mr Persich: Were a big company with
three hundred and fifty employees
and we were the first company in
California to respect all the safety
rules of the state. We care about
our construction workers. We build
luxury homes and big buildings in
Hollywood, Santa Monica and
Beverly Hills. Weve just finished
building a twenty-two room home
with an Olympic swimming pool
for the rock star Brutal Bob. It was
quite a job and it took us over a
year to complete it. Hes a difficult
client because he changes his mind
all the time. Sometimes he called
me at midnight to talk about the
shape of the swimming pool!
Elizabeth: What a huge home!
Mr Persich: Well, its his fifth home!
He has one in New York, San
Francisco, New Orleans and
He travels a lot with his band THE
BRUTES and he needs homes all
over the United States.
Elizabeth: How much did this one
Mr Persich: Im sorry, Im not allowed
to discuss prices, but I can tell you
it wasnt cheap. Now the actress
Violet Pink wants to build an even
bigger home near Brutal Bobs!

Elizabeth: Have you built any big

buildings in the downtown area
Mr Persich: Were building the
Beverly Hills Magnificent Mall
near Rodeo Drive. Its going to be
the citys biggest shopping center.
Just think, twenty-four floors of
designer shops and boutiques! And
on the twenty-fifth floor there will
be a five-star restaurant for
hungry shoppers.
Elizabeth: When will the Magnificent
Mall be ready?
Mr Persich: In three years.
Elizabeth: Do you ever have problems
buying land for your homes and
Mr Persich: Oh, yes, we often do. The
area around Hollywood and Santa
Monica has a lot of history. We
never build on land that is
important or sacred to a
community. We always respect
that land because we respect
people and their traditions.
Elizabeth: Thank you for your time,
Mr Persich.
Mr Persich: It was a pleasure, Miss

Susan: Hello, my name is Susan Lee.
Im a new reporter from the Los
Angeles Gazette. I just started
working for the paper last week. I
worked for the Los Angeles News
for five years, but then they closed
the newspaper offices.
Wild Wolf: Good morning, Ms Lee.
Susan: Im writing an article about
the Chumash Indian Reservation.
Can I ask you a few questions?
Wild Wolf: Yes, please sit down. My
Indian name is Wild Wolf and Im
the chief of the reservation.
Susan: How long have you lived here?
Wild Wolf: Ive lived here all my life
seventy-five years. I was born on
this reservation, and my father
was born here too.
Susan: Thats a long time! Then you
know all about the reservation.
This land belonged to your
ancestors, didnt it?
Wild Wolf: Yes, it did for hundreds of
years. At the end of the nineteenth
century we lost all our land and
the American government gave us
this reservation in February 1901.
Susan: How many people live here?
Wild Wolf: Only five hundred twenty
men, women and children live here
today. But many years ago more
than a thousand people lived here.
Susan: Did they go away?
Wild Wolf: Yes, they went to live in
the big city because there was
little work on the reservation. At
first they had many big
problemsthey couldnt find a
place to live and they couldnt find
work. It was very difficult for them
to make friends outside the
reservation. Now most of them
have a home and a job.

Susan: What business do you have on

the reservation today?
Wild Wolf: Our only business today is
the riding stable.
Susan: Do you ever go to Los
Wild Wolf: I only go to Los Angeles
once a year in April for the big
meeting of all the California tribes:
the powwow.
Susan: How interesting! Do you still
Wild Wolf: Of course I do! I work at
the museum and the gift shop
every day of the week except
Monday, from 10 to 4. Then I go to
the riding stable and help George
with the horses and the riding
lessons. A lot of people from
Portola Point and other towns
come to our stables to learn how
to ride. I like helping George, hes a
good man.
Susan: Youre a very busy man!
Thank you for the interview, Wild
Wild Wolf: Youre welcome! Please
stay for lunch, Susan. Were having
fish and salad today. After lunch
you can take pictures of the
reservation and visit the stables.

Hello! My name is Brian Colby and Im
your California tour guide. Before we
drive north to San Francisco, let me
tell you a little about the state of
Gaspar de Portol, a Spanish soldier,
explored the California coast in 1769.
In the late 1700s and early 1800s
there were many Spanish settlements
along the coast.
California suddenly became very
famous when gold was discovered at
Sutters mill on the American River in
1848. In 1849 thousands of people
from all over the world traveled to

California to look for gold and some

found it and became rich! This period
was called the Gold Rush. San
Francisco became an important
seaport during the Gold Rush.
In 1850 California became the thirtyfirst state of the United States, and it
is now one of the most important
states with a population of about
thirty-six million people. California
has a rich economy because it has
many natural resources, industries
and businesses. Its climate is always
The capital of the state is
Sacramento and the state animal is
the grizzly bear. The state tree is the
beautiful California Redwood, one of
the worlds tallest treesbetween
200 and 275 feet tall. Californias
colors are blue and gold.
The highest mountain in the state is
Mt Whitney which is 14,496 feet
above sea level. On the southeast
border with Nevada we have Death
Valley. It is the lowest point in United
States its 282 feet below sea level.
Its also the hottest place in North
