A long-time surfer and boating enthusiast, he is the local media relations representative of the International Game Fish Association. Formerly editor of the San Diego Log, Innis is a freelance editor and writer who lives in San Diego with his wife and daughter.Review:
Jack Scheffler Innis has done the near-impossible, turning local history into a can't-put it- down epic. The usual suspects are all here Padre Serra, Wyatt Earp, Charles Rainmaker Hatfield but I was captivated by the unusual suspects...Felicita, the angel of the Battle of San Pasqual; the whale bombers of Ballast Point; the Lost Frenchman Mine; Zorine, Queen of the Nudists...and much more. This lavishly illustrated book is conclusive proof that, yes, there is more to San Diego than a zoo. --Peter Rowe, San Diego Union-Tribune
San Diego Legends contains dozens of remarkable tales each one furthering our understanding of how this region was developed and settled. It's a book you'll want to have and to share. --Mike Harris, Editor, San Diego Log
The colorful characters, old legends, and odd events described in San Diego Legends will help local travelers appreciate the often-quirky history of the San Diego region. --Jerry Schad, Afoot and Afield in San Diego County
