Robin Chapman, longtime journalist and native of Los Altos, has written a new book Historic Bay Area Visionaries that tells the story of this region’s history through the eyes of six people:

  • Ohlone Lope Inigo found a way to protect his family in troubled times on the shores of San Francisco Bay;
  • Pioneer Juana Briones made a fortune from her rancho yet took the time to care for those in need;
  • Innovator Thomas Foon Chew discovered a climate for success, in spite of the obstacles;
  • Around the region that became Silicon Valley, filmmaker Charlie Chaplin found inspiration;
  • Poet Robert Louis Stevenson uncovered adventure; and
  • Sarah Winchester built a house that would intrigue people long after she was gone.
