"On the celebration day, December 12, 2002, of becoming Alameda City's first Poet Laureate, I bring to the public this book documenting some historic legendary writers of poetry and the places they knew in Alameda"--Page 5. ... "Alameda's Poet Laureate Mary Rudge is a phenomenon who is unique but not rare since many literary persons: William Saroyan, Jack London, Don Blanding, Robert Louis Stevenson, Robert Duncan, poet-musicians such as Jim Morrison of The Doors, with Phyllis Diller, (and numerous visual artists, musicians, writers, film-makers, actors such as Tom Hanks, and peace activists not encompassed in this book) have made a connection to this island that has become legendary for the genius of its people in a place so small. Readers of this story-map of the island's literary history by Mary Rudge will have a fascinating experience following the route around the island where her ardent heart leads you; where poets in the past have been touched by the sense of place and their experiences. A walk around Alameda, following passages in this book, is an adventure in the real world of the excitement in lives of poets." -- This book is both a guide to Alameda and its vibrant history, and a tribute to the legendary life of Jack London. Through photos, anecdotes, letters and passages from his books, the author traces London's roots, his haunts, family, friendships and primarly the neighborhood where he lived in his early years
