Tonight's Special Guest Star: David Talbot, author of THE CABIN!
Two perspectives, eleven years apart, on one profoundly affecting place, deep in the wilds of Southern Oregon.
Such is the basis for this dual account by Louise Ruddle Talbot and David Talbot, mother and son, on extended stays at the family's primitive cabin in the Rogue River wilderness. Half of the story is from the diary of Louise, a San Francisco urbanite convinced by her husband to move their family (including six-week-old David), from California's comforts to Oregon's rugged back country in 1933, to ride out the Great Depression. The balance of remembrances are David's, from the family's second cabin stay in 1944, when he was eleven.
About the Authors:
Louise Ruddle Talbot was a San Francisco girl with a twinkle in her eye, a passion for arts and culture, and a writer's heart.
David Talbot is retired director of Oregon State Parks, serving from 1964 until 1992. At the time of his retirement, he was the longest serving state parks director in the United States.
