Author to talk pioneer, Grizzlies

Nat Read, author of “Don Benito Wilson: From Mountain Man to Mayor,” will discuss the book and its story at 7 p.m. Monday at the Center for Spiritual Living in La Crescenta.

The book chronicles the story of Wilson's journey as “pioneer, beaver trapper/ trader, grizzly bear hunter, Indian fighter, justice of the peace, farmer, rancher, politician, horticulturist, vintner, real estate entrepreneur, and one of the great land holders in Southern California.”

The center, formerly known as the La Crescenta Church of Religious Science, is on the corner of Dunsmore Avenue and Santa Carlotta Street.
