After the death of Gilda in 1908, Peter and his five children, Gildo, Anthony, Hugo, Margaret and Peirina moved often and eventually homesteaded on an 80 acre property in Little River. These and many other stories are told by the family as they remember their parents, grandparents and growing up on the Mendocino Coast. Speakers are Bob Canclini, his sister, Gilda Lillian Canclini Drinkwater and cousin, Doris Canclini Pinckney.
