Wind in the Pass
Author David Allee was born in Oroville; lived in Brazil, Hawaii, Idaho, Georgia, and Missouri before returning to northern California. He now lives in Orland. He earned four degrees over a period of 20 years including degrees in Biblical Studies and International Business and a master's degree in Public Administration. His varied career has included service as an ordained member of the clergy, so he was reluctant to tell about experiences he had on California highway 152. He waited over 28 years to write this "true story" behind the haunting of the Pacheco Pass section of this highway.
