To most Americans California is a vast hedonistic strip of ocean front property populated by trendy, tanned beautiful people in the southern state and urbane, politically correct activists in the northern state. However, the heart of the state can be found on the other side of the coastal ridge in the vast valleys that stretch from the Mexican border to the Oregon state line. Populated by the grandchildren of immigrants from all over the world and the US, it is the part of the state in which one can find someone who shares more with the rest of the US than residents of San Francisco or Los Angeles do.
