When Vince Montague's wife perishes in a tragic car accident, he is plunged into a world of grief. After weeks of loneliness and despair, he begins to explore his wife's pottery studio in the wild hills of Northern California, teaching himself to mix clay, throw a pot, fire a kiln, trim and glaze.
Enjoy fascinating stories from 160 years worth of recorded history, including the fires which burned the resort multiple times, advertising copy promising “miracle cures,” and a photo of Lim Chum, known in 1938 as “the best resort cook around.” Written by local historian and long-time Comptche resident Katy Tahja. Includes 18 black-and-white photos.
