Did Sir Francis Drake claim Monterey for Queen Elizabeth? What does it take to win the world’s worst car show? Why did an Argentinian privateer attack the port of Monterey? Did General Sherman jilt the beautiful Senorita Bonifacio? Why did Robert Louis Stevenson start a forest fire? When will the next “big one” strike on one of the world's most closely observed earthquake faults? Local author David Laws answers these questions and introduces you to little-known legends, myths, places, and stories about Monterey County as described in his new book "Secret Monterey: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure."
