“Ted Calvert has assembled a book that celebrates what is most worthy of our respect, reflection, and protection: the natural beauty of our own backyard, and the place we call home. It should be read not only by residents of Sonoma County but by anyone who admires the ever changing Northern California hills.”
-Dan Imhoff, author of Farming with the Wild, president
and cofounder of Watershed Media publishing house
Healdsburg Chronicles is about where Healdsburg has been and where Healdsburg is today. It captures the very essence of Healdsburg, Past & Present.
“My love for nature has inspired me to write of its value to our community.”

The book explores the changes and development of the Healdsburg, and the Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys before the 1800s to present time with emphasis on geography and architecture.
