Excerpt from Butte County, California: Its Resources and Advantages for Home Seekers; A Pamplet Indorsed by the County Board of Supervisors, Chico Town Council, and Board of Trade

The Sierra Nevada Mountains, in the eastern part of the county, are not so lofty and precipitous as elsewhere north and south of the line of Butte County. There are no snowy peaks - no mountain from which the snow does not entirely disappear in early summer. Their sides are mostly smooth and sloping, heavily timbered, and filled with grassy meadows. The Feather River, which from Oroville ows in a single bold stream to the Sacramento, above Oroville, is formed by three great branches coming down from the north, northeast and east; which great branches, with their innumerable tributaries, constitute such a complete, abundant, and well-distributed water supply, for all purposes, as is not to be found elsewhere in the State, if in the world.

On the west a vast stretch of level land extends from the base of the mountains to the Sacramento River, a distance varying from twenty-five miles in the southern part of the county to five miles in the northern. Through these lands ow the Feather River, Butte Creek, and Chico Creek, whose waters are abundant in the driest seasons, with numerous lesser streams, whose waters are absorbed by the thirsty agricultural lands in mid-summer.
