A fascinating new book about the political history of Point Reyes National Seashore written by Gerald Warburg.

"Kennedy, according to Warburg, had wanted the designation for Cape Cod, but for political and regional balance added Point Reyes."

"“I didn’t realize the depth of the White House support for Point Reyes,” Warburg said. “I grew up thinking John Ehrlichman was a villain from Watergate days. I didn’t realize he was actually one of the heroes of Point Reyes."

"Despite the diverse cast of characters, Warburg believes the thriving park would not exist today were it not for Katherine Miller Johnson (widow of Clem Miller), a woman so erased from the story that there is nothing about her in the signage at Point Reyes."
