oldcoyoteThe Old Coyote of Big Sur by Jaime de Angulo

Jaime de Angulo (1887-1950) was born in Paris of Spanish parents. He came to America in 1905, found work as a cowboy, and ended up in San Francisco the day before the Great Earthquake in 1906.

Built his homestead on Partington Ridge in Big Sur in 1914, thus when Miller moved to the ridge in 1947 they became neigbours. De Angulo was a medical doctor, psychologist, renowned linguist, and novelist. This unique first-person account of Big Sur’s homesteading bohemian days can only be purchased through the Library!
