It took only an afternoon at Rancho Camulos more than a century ago to inspire novelist Helen Hunt Jackson to make it the setting of her epic romance "Ramona." And the location's allure was enough to spark the interest of historians and local politicians, who succeeded in having the aging ranch designated Ventura County's first National Historic Landmark last year.

But as every concerned parent knows, not all children read for pleasure, especially those who excel early at spitting contests--offspring commonly known as boys.

For such a lively guy, Charles LeMenager has a lot of dead friends. Like Mike Julian. Mike nearly struck out as a Confederate soldier--the enemy captured him twice--but he was so handsome he later got a town named after him. Or W.L.
