Marvin A. Schenck, Karen Holmes, and Sherrie Smith-Ferri

Bumping along rutted dirt roads in a horse drawn wagon, an intrepid photographer named Aurelius O. Carpenter carted his camera equipment across the frontier of Northern California’s rural Mendocino County region. For nearly 40 years, beginning in the early 1870s, he documented the lives of Pomo Indians and white settlers; the coming of the railroad, logging and shipping industries; and the agricultural endeavors and natural beauties of this area. The first examination of Carpenter’s life and career, this book brings to life an important period of California history. 120 pages, includes some 100 duotone photographs drawn from the collections of the Grace Hudson Museum, softcover only. Published in 2006.
