12B Wednesday, Aug. 13, 2014 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Authc)l s to spc,,t00 on radio proc Graeagle residents Carl and Margaret Chavez will be radio guests on the Death Valley Jim radio show broadcast from Palm Springs on Saturday, Aug. 23, at 8 a.m. The one-hour interview program will feature the Chavezes' book "A Year in Bodie: 1966-1967," which was released last year. The program can be heard locally via online stream at kptr1450,com. Chavez, former park manager and founder of the Plumas-Eureka State Park Association, wrote his first successful book, "A Pathway Through Parks," in 2004. It discusses the many assignments of his 33-year career with California State Parks. One chapter of that book featured stories from the ghost town Bodie State Historic Park where he began his career with state parks in 1966. At "Bodie Days" in 2012 Carl was the guest speaker at the 50th-year celebration of Bodie becoming a state historic park. After his talk many folkswere interested in how his wife, Margaret, managed under the harsh conditions of Bodie. Margaret was pregnant when the couple lived in the ram Margaret and Carl Chavez share their experiences living in the town of Bodie in a book they co-authored, which they will discuss during an upcoming radio program. Photo submitted isolated 8,400-foot-elevation environment of a Bodie winter. The town was essentially snowed in from December to May without a telephone, radio or other modern conveniences. "A Year in Bodie" includes Margaret's memories of that time as well as excerpts from the journal that Carl kept while there for the year. Because no children were allowed to live in Bodie in the extreme winters they were required to transfer out after their daughter, Abigail Rose, was born in June 1967. As Margaret now says about the book, "Carl wrote the stories in it" and "I wrote the truth!" Copies of the book are available at Epilog Books in Quincy, the Graeagle Lighting Store, the Plumas-Eureka State Park Museum, Amazon.corn and Barnes & Noble.

Little and Bird co-wrote this and two other stories investigating different aspects of post-nuclear forest management and policy. Their award-winning feature appeared in the online publication Environmental Health Perspectives. Other stories were published in Earth Island Journal and the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, Little, a freelance writer based in Plumas County, began her journalism career as a reporter and editor with Feather Publishing Co. She writes in-depth stories about science and natural resources for Scientific American, Audubon, The Daily Climate and other national publications. She also writes Northern Exposure, a monthly column for the Sacramento Bee, where she is a correspondent. Bird writes about natural resource issues in Japan for The Japan Times, The Christian Science Monitor, Science and Yale Environment 360.
