By Gay Berrien. "A book about self reliance. Grover Hayden Ladd was born at a gold mine near the town of Denny in northwestern Trinity County, California. A remote and very mountainous region, it is the only place Grover ever lived. Born in 1887 and dying in 1972, he lived through times of many technological changes in the world, including the step from horse and carriage to motorized vehicle and an American walking on the moon." Please note that this book is marked to half price because the bindings have not been holding up well.
