Buhne blog namesake focus of new book
Modern Humboldt County denizens may be more likely to associate the figure of Capt. Buhne with the blogger who started the new media phenomenon on the north coast.
But the real Capt. Buhne — the guy who first rode a ship into Humboldt Bay — is the subject of a new book and upcoming public event.
Marvin Shepherd, author of “The Sea Captain’s Odyssey, A Biography of H. H. Buhne, 1822-1894,” will speak and sign books starting at 1:30 today at the Humboldt County
Historical Society Library.
