There’s a new book out that covers the history of Aliso Viejo out that tells the city’s history  through photos and stories. Called Images of America: Aliso Viejo, it was written by Bob Bunyan, president of the Aliso Viejo Community Foundation since 1999.

The publisher’s website explains that it as little as 30 years ago, Aliso Viejo was a “6,6000-acre working ranch, with cattle, goats, and sheep and a variety of crops.” Since the late 70s, the city has gradually grown to 48,000 residents who say “their hometown is close to it all.”

Author Bob Bunyan says his hope is that the book “preserve for future generations this unique history of their master-planned community, and that future residents will appreciate the work done by so many to create this wonderful place.”  

The book is being sold on the publisher's website (I also saw it on Amazon and Barnes and Noble) and in certain retailers. Proceeds for the books will go the Community Foundation’s College Scholarship fund to benefit the city’s high school seniors.
