Fun Fact: First Time California Was Written

Fun facts about California

Historians dispute the origin of California’s name, however the strongest guess is that is comes from the 16th century book Las sergas de Esplandián. The novel featured an island called California which was inhabited by only women. When Spanish explorers traveled around the western parts of North America, they often thought they had found the “real” island of California.
