I am a greatgrandaughter of Amos Doers. I have just published my memior Among the Silent Giants by Sharon Porter Moxley. I am down from Amos and Marys son Guy Henry Doers. The book has loads of information about the Doers family as well as photos of Guy and his children Allan,Doris, Maude and my mother Ruby.
The book is an unusual read full of humor (Doer's humor of course,adventures.
When Sharon Porter was a gutsy, precocious kid, she lived in the giant redwoods of Northern California, high up in a remote logging camp called Whitethorn. Told from young Sharon's point of view, Among the Silent Giants is a sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, and often unexpected narrative of her adventures and struggles coping with life in and around the camp and gaining a sense of her identity. On her horse Stardust, she explores the timber country, fishes, traps, and hunts for food in mountains with the big, ancient trees so quiet and still that she believes they have spirits in them.
