A respected Fillmore teacher and resident, Harriet "Petey" Weaver is considered the first woman park ranger in California State Parks. In Me and the Mother Tree, she recounts in vivid prose her 20 years working in at the very beginning of the Calfornia State Park System. She brings to life not only the early parks, but many of the rangers and staff who operated, protected, served and educated the public. Petey served in four parks, Big Basin, Richardson Grove, Pfeiffer Big Sur and Seacliff State Beach, during her park career which spanned from 1929 to 1950.
