Very scarce and elaborate brochure on the 1500 acre Brownshast Ranch in Northern California which was for sale at the time. Only 1 copy located at OCLC, and no previous auction records were found.

The ranch was described as a "sportsman's paradise," ideal for a dude ranch, club, fishing, etc. The estate had to be settled and the ranch had to sell quickly, and thus was offered for $1,250,000 which at the time was about a quarter of its value. The ranch was the "renowned home of the famous Shasta horses."
