The View from the Edge: The Life and Landscapes of Bev. Johnson
by Gabriela Zim


 
  • "An image can live on in steel or marble, in photos, videos, books and memories, but the person goes with her last breath. Everything else is but an echo that one day gets lost in time. And yet something survives, something more real and personal than a statue or a requiem. And that something is carried on by all those who knew the person in flesh and blood and spirit."—John Long

  • "If Beverly had been a man she would have been called 'intrepid.' As a woman, her lengedary injuries were badges of pride, proof of acomplishments. Beverly couldn't wait to tll a story on herself, because her infirmities not only proved that her wild adventures were true, but also that she was a real lady, a debutante who, like Nancy Drew and Wonder Woman, had escaped and prevailed Yet again." — Malinda Chouinard
