Bill Gove told CA: ‘My writing is motivated by a strong interest in history, especially logging and railroad history. I am influenced by the fact that so much of our history is permanently lost every year. My desire has been to document some of that history. Of course, I also enjoy researching and writing now during my retirement years."
