In recovering the particular riches of Monterey's literally storied past, Walton finds universal experiences of labor, resistance, loss, and silencing. His own masterful storytelling lets us develop a fuller, more humane tie to the people of our past."--Alan Taylor, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning "William Cooper's Town: Power and Persuasion on the Frontier of the Early American Republic
