Questions for Map 2

1. Locate the towns of Locke and Walnut Grove. Then locate the Sacramento River. Based on the map's scale, approximately how far are the towns from the river? Why would this be a good place for the Chinese and Japanese immigrants to establish their communities? Why would this area be prime farming and agricultural land?

* The map on the screen has a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a high quality version of Map 2, but be aware that the file will take as much as 30 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
