About the Author

Garth Murphy is a jack-of-all-trades who rides waves; an avid historian and lifelong reader of fiction. His first novel has been a fifteen-year labor of love. Educated in Honolulu and at La Jolla, UCSB, UCSD, and in Australia, Garth is a north country San Diegan who haunts the hidden coves of Baja California Sur, Mexico.


Gerry Lopez

Surfing journalist, "Surfer's JournaI"In this rich story of the wrenching birth of San Diego County, the Yankee hero learns firsthand that the ghost/soul of California is Native American, and always will be, no matter how deeply they may be buried by successive waves of flag-carrying immigrants. Native soul, not conquest, links far-flung Hawaii to California. A common native soul fuels our stormy love affair with Mexico and bonds us to all of the Americas. With a rap on the funny bone and a gut punch, Garth Murphy reminds us that we are all subject to the indelible spirit of the People whose land we call our own.
Julia Chaplin

Contributing writer, "The New York Times"An action-packed time machine with age-proof universals...sex, lies, and hot springs. It made my flight from L.A. to New York seem like five minutes.
Mike Doyle

Author of "Morning Glass"If only history had been this memorable in school, I would have made straight As. "The Indian Lover" should be required reading.
Nat Young

Author of "The History of Surfing" and "Nat's Nat and That's That"This is history fulfilled in fiction, realized in flesh and blood and emotion, with an abiding affection for all the mess that makes us men. A lovely book.
