Pioneers of Mill Creek Canyon
The pioneers of Mill Creek Canyon in the San Bernardino Mountains were visionaries, eccentrics and adventurers. Daniel Sexton married a Native American wife hoping to gain the secret to a mine, while Peter Forsee, a world-weary sheriff, married a widow who was sheltering two outlaw sons. Sylvanus Thurman's burros carried travelers into the wild and sometimes took them for a wild ride. George Burris didn't find gold, but his marble discovery built mansions. D. Rhea Igo created roadside attractions, and Louie Torrey left the city to farm the forest, creating a paradise for his family and others. Join author Shannon Wray as she explores the colorful lives of those who left an indelible mark on Mill Creek Canyon.
