After eight years of research, interviews and studying years of newspaper archives and maps I am ready to announce he release of my first book. The absolutely true story of Hope Nance, the last surviving member of Grandview in the Lower Desert of Central Oregon.
I spent one day a month with Hope for three years. Born in homesteaders cabin, she tells of her birth, her loss of a mother, the memories of her siblings and her coming of age in a remote farm in the Central Oregon desert. It was also drawn from six years of researchmg newspapers, interviews with relatives and friends, and the internet. When she asked me if I could write her her story, how could I say no !
Here is her story !
