Trinidad, California, like most cities in the U.S., has a storied past. Starting as the Yurok village of Tsurai perhaps as far back as the 1100's, through Spanish discovery in 1775, and still a lively little coastal city of over three hundred people today, Trinidad has evolved with the times. Sit with me and let me tell you about our history as an important ocean harbor link with the fur traders of the northwest and the gold mining camps of Northern California. Logging and milling the giant redwoods started around here and we had our own whaling station, too. And let me tell you about the people who came here and grew Trinidad into the 14,719th largest city in the U.S.!This book also includes a handy Guide to Nautical Terms just because I wanted it to.Pull up a rocking chair and let's look back as I tell you about Trinidad from my front porch.

About the Author

John is on his fourth career in life: he spent twelve years as a firefighter, then six years touring a two-person melodrama show with his wife Sheryl, then eighteen years supporting adults with developmental disabilities, and now as an author. He's still trying to decide what he wants to be when he grows up.

So much to do, so little time!

His materials on supporting adults with developmental disabilities are currently being used in forty-eight states and three other countries. And many of his close personal friends have read his fiction books.
