Résumé
Morongo Valley and Yucca Valley, California are spatially differentiated in their settlement and land use patterns. The manner in which the two communities have become spatially differentiated has, in part, been the result of various decisions concerning the disposal and acquisition of the public land. These decisions were manifested in two interrelated processes : (1) the disposal of the public land by the Federal Government ; and (2) the acquisition of this land by individuals and corporations as well as other governmental units. Certain public land acts were identified which served as the mechanisms for these two processes and also as having influenced the development of settlement and land use patterns in each community : Texas Pacific Railroad Act, Homestead acts, Desert Land Act, Timber and Stone Act, and Small Tract Act. Parcels of land acquired in both communities under these acts have undergone change through land division and subdivision. It is shown that the decisions involved in and the manner of selection of public land through the provisions of the various land acts in the two communities explain, in part, their present differences in settlement and land use patterns
