The Blond Ranchero" reflects life on the Nipomo Rancho from young Juan's perspective.

The Blond Ranchero" reflects life on the Nipomo Rancho from young Juan's perspective. In his memoir, Juan Francisco Dana, son of a father from the United States and a mother from Mexican California, carries us back to life as it was in the time of the large ranchos and then the transition to American California, recounting incidents that happened to him as he grew to be a man. Very readable and interesting, this book makes that way of life vivid. We can imagine the vast expanses with cattle, horses, and wild animals, and the family connections between the "californium".

According to Stamey, The Vaquero Song was inspired by the time he’s spent exploring the Dana Adobe - as well as the book The Blond Ranchero: Memories of Juan Francisco Dana by Rocky and Marie Harrington Dana. Looking east toward the hills, you can almost get a sense of how the (landscape) looked in the 1840s, when Capt. Dana had just finished building his home, Stamey said. Stamey, who lived in Nipomo for 25 years before moving to northeastern Tulare County about five years ago, said he’s looking forward to his return to the South County.

Although Dana and his Yankee counterparts criticized the Mexican government in their letters to each other, they prospered in California. Dana received Mexican citizenship in 1835 and applied in 1837 for the large land grant that became Rancho Nipomo. The family moved to Rancho Nipomo in 1839.

Marie was a younger sister of an acquaintance that Rocky Balboa knew in the first movie Rocky and also in Rocky V. The part of Marie was played by Jodi Letizia. In the 2006 film Rocky Balboa, Marie is revived as a divorced single mother to a teen son. This time around she is played by Geraldine Hughes.

Memoirs of California Pioneer Juan Francisco Dana (died 1936 at age 98). Dana was the son of Captain William Goodwin Dana of Boston, who settled in Santa Barbara, California. After a long maritime career, Captain Dana became administrator of the Port of Santa Barbara. In 1828 Captain Dana married Josefa Carrillo of Santa Barbara, whose father was at one time governor. The couple acquired a Mexican land grant and began ranching north of Santa Barbara on the vast Nipomo Rancho, which later would become southern San Luis Obispo County. Unlike many other California ranchos, the Nipomo Rancho was well maintained by several generations of Danas. Juan Francisco Dana, nicknamed "El Huero" (the fair-haired one), was the last surviving Dana brother. His long and interesting life extended from old rancho days under the Republic of Mexico to 1936. "The Blond Ranchero" reflects life on the Nipomo Rancho from young Juan's perspective.
  • I grew up in Nipomo and wanted this book since it was written.

  • A gem. Loved it!

  • In his memoir, Juan Francisco Dana, son of a father from the United States and a mother from Mexican California, carries us back to life as it was in the time of the large ranchos and then the transition to American California, recounting incidents that happened to him as he grew to be a man. Very readable and interesting, this book makes that way of life vivid. We can imagine the vast expanses with cattle, horses, and wild animals, and the family connections between the "californium". I acquired this book at the Dana Adobe in Nipomo, California, a California historical site, at the gift shop and it is a valuable companion to a visit to any California Rancho site.
