About the Author

James Marino has years of archaeologist field experience, so it's no wonder he has a passion for unraveling the cultural mysteries and the history of Glass Beach. Understanding a previous culture and the clues of their lifestyle left behind in artifacts has been his passion for over 40 years. Because of what's called "dump site displacement characteristics," Glass Beach challenges any archaeologist. After five years of research and collecting dump site artifacts, James has revealed the historic secrets of some of the glass beaches. Within these pages, he shares his research findings to delight readers fascinated by Glass Beach. James is currently enjoying his retirement years in Fort Bragg, California: he lives within a mile of Glass Beach.
