Pioneering the Message in the Golden West, by Harold Oliver McCumber, documents the beginnings of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in California. 

Less than a century before this book was written in 1946, the first Seventh-day Adventist reached California. By 1946 the church operated a medical school, two senior colleges, a large publishing house, four sanitariums, and numerous academies and grade schools. 

This book seeks to inform the reader of the values and principles on which the Seventh-day Adventist Church movement was founded, review the sacrificial years of devotion, and recall the labor and means given by those who spread a new belief, prompted by idealism and love of humanity.
