A New Home for Darla

Gayle Baker was raised in southern Texas. She contributes her love for Christ, family, and anything with four legs, to her parents. Harnessing her passion for teaching children and rescuing strays, she wrote this children’s book about Darla, the one-eyed, feral dog she rescued in 2007.

The first of seven (to date) concise, comprehensive histories of California coastal towns, this HarborTown History of Catalina Island offers the tale of a lovely island, from its beginnings as a tribal homeland through explorers, tourists, movie stars, and its many owners. 
Reputed to be the first place in California where gold was discovered, follow the adventures (and mis-adventures) of Catalina's gold seekers. Learn about the Island's long succession of owners and their dreams of wealth. Enjoy, also, tales of a parade of tourists and movie stars, a famous sea monster, a unique turntable airport, and the famous author who brought bison.  
Lauded by the Catalina Island Museum staff as well-researched, complete, and delightful read, this book is also enriched with twenty-five historical photographs. Detailing the Wrigley Years, as well as those who lived and loved on this amazing Island, it is a must read for visitors and residents alike.
