April 30 History-Nature Walk and Car Caravan, 9 AM sharp

Meet author Naida West at her ranch along the Cosumnes River and walk back in time. You’ll see places that inspired her California Gold Trilogy such as the state’s first shootout over water, cabin site of a Donner Party survivor, and one of two Miwok sites, the village with the "grandmother tree" or a larger village already abandoned in 1849. In either case you will feel the spirits of those who walked there before you. After the walk, you’ll enjoy a catered lunch by Amador Vintage Market on Naida’s lawn. Then we will caravan to the oldest, unrepaired, pioneer dwelling standing in Sacramento County.

Attendance is limited. To participate, contact Naida at bridgehousebooks@gmail.com or 916-350-0152 about remaining space. Your check for $33 covers lunch and tip, and confirms your participation. Send to Naida West, P.O. Box 809, Rancho Murieta, CA 95683. When confirmed, you’ll receive directions to the ranch, which is not on Google Maps.
