The population of California up to the 18th century consisted of representatives of more than 70 Indian tribes who were engaged in fishing, cattle breeding and migrating along the entire coast. The most notable representatives were the tribes of Lemena, Chumishi, Mojavi. In the 16th century, the British and the Portuguese appeared here - for the first time explored the coast of Francis Drake and Diego Cabrillo.

By 1800, the Russians organized their own settlements here, as well as Spanish missionaries, seizing vast lands in Baja California. The American expansion, which has gained strength, has consistently dealt with rivals from Spain and Mexico, and in 1850, California became the 31st American state. Gold-diggers began to actively flock here, and after the transcontinental highway, the population of California has grown many times, because many were attracted to comfortable conditions for farming and animal husbandry, which is why California is now the most populated state in the USA.

California has an elongated shape and goes along the Pacific coast, stretching at a distance of over 1000 km. California has a long border with the state of Oregon in the northern part and in a smaller part with the states of Nevada and Arizona on the eastern side. The southern border for 500 km is also part of the state border with adjacent Mexico. The length of the entire state of California from north to south is 1,250 km, and from west to east is about 400 km.

Palm belongs to Los Angeles County, there are almost 10 million people. Even the average population density in the state of California is quite high - about 91 people per square kilometer.

The rest are Asians - 12% and the local Indian population, African Americans. Their share in total accounts for about 7% of the total population.


California has a mild Mediterranean climate that allows for a rather warm winter and arid hot summer. In the colder period due to the northern current there are quite frequent fogs along the coast.

As we move deeper into the United States, the climate becomes much more continental, the range of temperatures increases. The northern part of California is subject to heavy rain, so the climate here is more severe and humid. The presence of mountains deep in the continent also prevents the atmospheric masses from passing too far, making the climate of California largely regional. In the east of California there are desert areas where the climate is much more severe due to the lack of mountain ranges, and the summer is dry and hot.
