Author and historian Neal Hotelling shares the story of The Wallace family of Carmel in the historic local newspaper, The Carmel Pine Cone. His three-part column was inspired by the publication of "The Big Work: 125 Years of Art, Journalism, and the American West," which sparked his interest in further researching the life of these early founding members of the bohemian Carmel artist community.
