Los Gatos friends eased tensions with lattes, fine wines, and inventive meals served up at Betsy and Whizzer White’s house of wonders. Distant friends and relatives cheered me on. My children—Ian and Nora—have lived with John Steinbeck all their lives and have forgiven my motherly lapses. From all of this, it should be clear that this was, indeed, a holistic venture.

From 1920 on, Mora lived in Carmel; he designed the sarcophagus of Father Junipero Serra at the Carmel Mission—”the supreme professional effort of my life,” he wrote—and a wooden sculpture of Serra in the Carmel woods.

Martin Hopps’s name is the first on this World War I memorial. The Nesbitt house, 66 Capitol Avenue. For her patriotism, Olive Steinbeck earned a terrifying (to her) ride in an army airplane to Spreckels, a true and hilarious story that found its way into East of Eden.

Salinas Town Marshall William Nesbitt, sheriff during Steinbeck’s childhood and youth, lived here from 1902 to 1923. In East of Eden, Sheriff Quinn is modeled on Nesbitt, as Steinbeck notes in Journal of a Novel (1969), his East of Eden notebook: “When we first see Nesbitt (Sheriff Quinn) he will be Chief Deputy … I remember him well.
