“I finished the book today. Thank you for opening the window to the past for me in your wonderful book about Newport and Kibesillah. I envisioned my family in their daily lives in the 1800s. With the turn of each page, the thrill continued. I have been looking at photos of my grandmother as a little girl and, in my mind’s eye, I can see her playing on those wind-blown hills and watching the ocean roll in day after day. What a wonderful childhood she must have had.” — Sharon Sherrick Rippetoe, Great Granddaughter of Frank Whipple


“It is hard to put this book down — one of the most interesting books I have read in some time! Henry (Whipple) was a grand writer and had lots of interesting articles in the (Mendocino) Beacon.” — Debra Callahan, 3rd Great Niece of Henry E. Whipple
