Jim Holden has long had the itch to write.
An accomplished lawyer and long a history buff, Jim had the perfect subject in mind: Marin County, one of America's most interesting corners.
Jim has resided in Marin for more than 40 years, and three years ago he decided to dig into Marin County history and lore. The result is a wonderful group of stories of the land, its natural assets like Mt. Tam, and the amazing characters that have touched Marin and influenced its history.
In these pages, you will find Teddy Roosevelt, John Muir, A.P. Giannini, the founder of the Bank of America, an early California pioneer named Martha Buckalew, and scores of other rebels, rascals and visionaries. The book will be published later this fall
under our sister imprint, Val de Grace Books.
