Drakesbad is a unique guest ranch located in the Warner Valley of Lassen Volcanic National Park. In 1900 the Sifford family acquired E.R. Drake’s holdings and began the transformation of developing the resort. Roy Sifford recounts the family operations for the sixty years the family owned Drakesbad.

To accompany his memoirs, are a variety of vintage photographs, plus recollections of people closely associated with Drakesbad—Les Bodine, John Pelkan and Nancy Carruthers Rorty.
