"Before her death in 1964 photographer Dorothea Lange had been planning to make what she called " a little book" about a cabin in California. The cabin was to be a focus for her because it had for so long figured centrally in her life and in the lives of her husband, her children, and her grandchildren. It was to this cabin that Dorothea Lange and Paul Taylor took their grandchildren and introduced them to the possibilities of a free, unscheduled, and simple way of being near the earth and sea and sky. The record of this experience was to form the theme of her book....Lange died before she could finish this journal, and it was not until some years later that her friend Margaretta Mitchell...set about to complete this work."--from the jacket copy
