Mary Frances Damon, a pioneer woman, was born in 1886 and raised in the California gold mining town of Sheep Ranch. In 1911, after becoming a Registered Nurse, Mary met and married Julius Rude and the couple soon relocated to Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Eventually Mary and Julius, and their two sons, Damon and Inslee, returned to Mary’s roots in California and settled in the Sierra Nevada sawmill and lumber town of Tuolumne. For the next thirty years, Mary taught sixth grade at Summerville Elementary School, and wrote several manuscripts, including The Adventures of Kootah.
I’ve been around Christian publishing since 1987 when I helped our ministry self-publish an important resource for Vietnam veterans and their families. That book went on to be picked up by a royalty publisher and has since sold over 250,000 copies with a million in print.
I’m glad you’re here…stop by often and take advantage of all the information we make available.
