More than one generation of American school children memorized Joaquin Miller's poem "Columbus" with its famous lines: "Brave Adm'rl, speak, what shall I say?" "Why, say: 'Sail on! Sail on! And on!" Columbus was written at the "Hights" (Joaquin Miller Park), where the legendary Indian fighting, gold mining poet did most of his literary work. Miller devoted an even greater portion of his time to farming and gardening his bare, windy hill. Fellow artists, as well as devotees from Japan, assisted him. His erratic family, such as his tragic Wintun daughter, did not. A hill walk. Leader: Phoebe Cutler
