As a child this was my favorite place My Grandparents Clarence and Edna Shoenberger owned 40 archers along the John Day River in Kimberly They ran Texaco Station that doubled as a museum to show rocks and fossils that they had found .Best of all my memories are a giant turtle shell that was used to hold agates that My Grandfather had tumbled. The turtle shell I believe is now at Sheep Rock while I have the agates . I remember the many trips out to old dig sits and finding leaves and fish outlines in the rocks and arrow heads made of obsidian. I learned how important they were to telling the story of not just the land but of how my Family came to live in Oregon . This is my first Book is near to my heart. I was born in Prairie City Oregon and Kimberly was my first home . I have live all over the Oregon territory and making My Home in Alaska , The John Day area holds many of my favorite early childhood memories. My next book is in the works as I take a trip on the Alaskan Marine Highway with My Dog Sadie I Hope you enjoy the book Sandra Marston
