KZYX&Z’s Be More Now Features a conversation with Dot Brovarney, the author of Mendocino Refuge
Tune into KZYX&Z’s Be More Now show at 7pm on Thursday, May 4 when host Blake More will interview Mendocino County authors Dot Brovarney and Kate Dougherty. They will be discussing Brovarney’s new book, Mendocino Refuge: Lake Leonard & Reeves Canyon, which explores the Mendocino canyon that holds the County’s largest natural lake and a fascinating history, telling a multifaceted story of place through the interconnected lives of its plants, wildlife, and human inhabitants from geological time to the present.
Historian Dot Brovarney, M.A., writes about the connections, past and present, between humans and the natural world. She published The Sweet Life: Cherry Stories from Butler Ranch, and co-authored the award-winning Remember Your Relations: The Elsie Allen Baskets, Family, and Friends, chronicling the lives and art of Native Pomo basketweavers. For thirty years, she made her home in Mendocino County’s oak woodlands before recently resettling “over the hill” on an ancient marine terrace in Fort Bragg.

Dot Brovarney’s new book, Mendocino Refuge: Lake Leonard & Reeves Canyon, explores the Mendocino canyon that holds the County’s largest natural lake and a fascinating history, including over 200 photographs and watercolor maps. For more about the book, visit www.mendocinorefuge.com.
