"Dennis McKee's pleasant voice gives entertaining variations and accents to the California
characters, and becomes beautifully appropriate for a couple of poems."--AudioFile

"Climb aboard and join Chuck on his incredible odyssey throughout the Golden State as he revisits this
wonderful cast of colorful characters. Take my word, you will be enchanted with every story that follows."
--Otis Chandler, former publisher of the Los Angeles Times

For forty-six years, Charles Hillinger journeyed around the world writing human-interest stories for the
Los Angeles Times. He also helped to create and produce special features for the popular NBC
television show, Real People.

From this work comes California Characters, a collection of stories of intriguing, eccentric, or simply
amazing individuals profiled by Hillinger. Many of these people have strange occupations, live solitary lives
in remote locations, or collect, build, or design an assortment of odd things. Characters like Down the Road
Dugan, Sweetwater Clyde, Dr. Tinkerpaw, Spaceship Ruthie, and Warmly Ormly will delight, amuse, and
perhaps inspire the listener with their tales and reasons why they've chosen to live the lives they do.
