Aleta George writes about the nature, history, and culture of California.
Dear Aleta,I recently "discovered" Ina Coolbrith while reading The Bohemians (by Ben Tarnoff) and Realms of Gold (by George Rathmell). Like so many others, she had been lost to me, but the more I read the more I wanted to know about her. I just finished reading your book and wanted to write to thank you for writing it and for digging out and sharing Ina's story! Your book was so well-researched and well-read, and it is truly a masterpiece in biography! I will write a summary of Ina's life, focused on her being named poet Laureate, and add it to the book of San Francisco people I am writing. Thank you for your book!
