Lois Rather was my cousin and a life long writer who greatly enjoyed doing research. She and her husband Clif operated the Rather Press where all the type was set by hand. They were well known and admired by those with similar enterprises.
Lois found that Rudyard Kipling had gotten to England by way of America and she tracked down all the information she could about the time he spent in San Francisco. The book I’m narrating from is one of a limited edition of less 200. The copyright is the property of her heirs.
