Jeannette Hanby grew up in a paved-over Southern California “wanting to know how to stop humans from ruining the planet.”
After a high school teacher exposed her to philosophy, Jeannette majored in physiological psychology at UC Berkeley before working with abandoned and abused children in Los Angeles County.
Emotionally exhausted, she found refuge in Big Sur. (Sound familiar!)
Her new book, "Feathered Canyons," illustrated by her partner David Bygott, reflects on her pivotal time in Big Sur in the early 60s as well as her stint with a gold-mining crew on the Feather River in the High Sierras.
