Ken Nugent, author and historian, will be on-hand at Four-Eyed Frog Books to discuss his recently published historical novel "Petaluma Slough" and sign copies for sale. Nugent will be at the venerable Frog at 4:00pm on May 19. As for the book, It's about FATE - It's about HISTORY - It's about TIME.
This saga takes us from Frontera del Norte valleys of Alta California to modern-day San Francisco. Mexican frontier commander, Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo, offers a sham land grant of a modest-sized rancho. The tainted bribe becomes the focal point for generations of conflicts. Fates of Indians, Californios, Kanakas, and Americans entwine in ways mysterious and shocking. Their legacies course through years of wars, bigotries, and betrayals until they collide in the Presidio Cemetery, near the Golden Gate Bridge.
