About the Book
This is a story about much more than a place. It’s a story about a group of friends who found the perfect place to party. It’s about an iconic time from 1977 to 1982 when a group of friends became a family.
Garcia Bend was a small patch of land located between the Sacramento River on one side and Pocket Road on the other, surrounded by farmland. But for the Party Animals, the original founders of Bums Beach, it was a hideout, a clubhouse, a paradise.
But all good parties come to an end. In this volume, Frank Tedrow II revisits the final weekend of the Garcia Bend party, two days of drugs, friends, mayhem, and brotherly love. The last perfect time, when this crew of close friends were still a family. That is what this book is about. Garcia Bend the people, not Garcia Bend the place.
