About the Book
Andrea Granahan has served as a journalist on Californiaís north coast for four decades. She describes the rural area she worked in as "QuirkUtopia" because of the varied and interesting people (and animals) she has met there. She revisits the roots of some of the more controversial and exciting events she covered as a reporter. From going to war with the US Navy over submarines killing fishermen, to Mario Savio demanding she censor her journalism students, Granahanís career saw a lot of action.

Some of her tales will make you laugh, others bring you to tears, or stir your sense of justice. This book reveals a unique corner of the world and shows small town journalism at work proving the pen is still mighty.
