'Cannery Row' book is rich

After he wrote “The California Abalone Industry – A Pictorial History,” A.L. Lundy, a Santa Barbara resident, turned his attention to John Steinbeck. A member of the Cannery Row Foundation board of directors since 1995, Lundy interviewed fellow foundation members and many other Monterey Peninsula residents as he compiled his notes for this book. Two delightful chapters, “Life with Ed” and “Life on the Row,” close out the volume. Along with a list of his sources, Lundy includes an appendix of the novel Cannery Row written by Steve Cook, an English professor at Westmont College in Santa Barbara. more
