The Visit: An Unusual Walk Through Sonoma History on an Early Easter Morning
In a delightful blend of fact and fiction, The Visit begins at dawn on an Easter morning, when a native Sonoman encounters a barefoot man in a blue serge suit emerging from the mist, walking in the middle of the street extending down from Shochen's hill in the northern California town of Sonoma. The two men walk, remember and talk of Sonoma's past and present, when another barefoot visitor, in blue serge, joins them. Three generations of Sonoma history unfold through the pages of The Visit with candid conversations, historical photos and engrossing tales of Sonoma and its people.
