Jepson Field Book volume 1 page 102
Round Valley. July 22 '97  "Hogs driven out to Ukiah. Wild cattle drive well when they get off the range and are started "on the road". Drive better than tame cattle.  Turkeys driven out -- 125 met on road this winter." -- P.B. Westermann  Round Valley has the reputation of being the country of the hardest characters in California but I never met more obliging or genial men or men who seemed to be more jealous of the good name of their valley. How curiously contradictory, it seems, for the ground is drenched in blood. Sunday is the grand holiday and the streets of Covelo are lined with saddle-horses from the ranges. Note this: Every ::::::::: Round Valley. July 22, '97  "Valley 8 mi longest way (N.W. & S.E.) -- 4 miles wide.  Indian Reservation occupies abut 1/3 the valley.  Valley produces all wheat into which flour is made. They supply Long Valley, and also the mountain country for 25 or 30 miles around.  It is 25 mi. to Sacramento Summit. Stock is driven to Sacramento Valley and Willows; most goes to Ukiah.  Bob White ranch runs across the valley except a narrow strip on east side. -- 4 miles long." -- P.B.W.  place of business is open. However the Flour Mill is closed but finds it necessary to put out this sign "This Mill will be closed on Sundays"!
