About the author (1993)

Redford Williams, M.D., is director of behavioral research at Duke University Medical Center, professor of psychiatry, and associate professor of medicine. He interned at Yale University School of Medicine and did two years of research at the National Institutes of Health. He is the author of The Trusting Heart as well as dozens of scientific papers.

Patrick John Rose was born on board his father's ship, the Marguerite, off the coast of New York on January 29, 1872. Patrick claimed to have sailed for more than 30 years and actually did sail to Cocos Island. Following his return to San Francisco, he gave up sailing as he had caught Alaskan gold fever. Patrick professed to be a "sailor, prospector, miner, cowpoke, and oil worker." We know that he published at least one book (Bitter River Ranch in 1936 through Phoenix Press) during his lifetime and wrote many others as well as painted numerous illustrations for his manuscripts-many of schooners-one of which purportedly hung in the White House. All illustrations in this book as well as the cover are photographs of his original paintings. Records indicate that he was married and living in San Francisco by 1918. Patrick Rose died in August, 1959, in Long Beach near the ocean he loved at 87 years of age.
