8-1/2 by 11 inches. 32 pages. In 1979, a man named Mattole (after the river in Humboldt County, California, on the far northwest coast of the state) set out on a horseback ride to Sacramento. He wanted to raise awareness of the environmental issues in southern Humboldt County. This very scarce book includes excerpts from his journey diary as well as reproducing news clippings. He wanted the legislature to declare the Mattole a 'Wild and Scenic' river. Another of his demands addressed marijuana cultivation: 'It is the God given right of every citizen to grow their own food, whether they shall eat it, or drink it, or smoke it.'
