THE FIRST PASSENGER WAGON TO REACH TASSAJARA - WILLIAM J. HILL'S ACCOUNT OF THE TRIP IN SEPTEMBER OF 1888

Marilyn McDonald's (formerly Doyle or at least called that in old Wind Bell linked to above) book on history of Tassajara will be available in the future. Currently there's a copy of her manuscript and some photos at Tassajara, at the UC Berkeley Bancroft Library  (Type in Tassajara Hot Springs in the upper right search box.), and Mark Stromberg, formerly director of Hastings Reserve has a copy which he scanned and, with the help of Keith Meyerhoff, is making into a book for sale at Tassajara and through print on demand. Marilyn was a guest who came to Tassajara many times and did many interviews and historical research.
