Photo Sunday, 3/2/19

I just received this delightful book this past week, and I thought I would share a couple of the pages with you. It is mostly the stories of coming down to Big Sur on mules or horseback checking on the schools – in the mountains and on the coast – bringing books and once bringing a social worker to check on a WWI vet living down in the canyon of the Los Burros Mining District. There are a few historical photographs. It is available on amazon.

  5. It’s a shame on its website – its publications don’t show any archives or recent newsletters links.

  6. Try the Big Sur Gazette. I know it has archived its past issues (70’s and 80’s, I think.)
