"This film was written and produced by Terra Linda and San Rafael (California) high school film students, ca. 1970-1976 under the supervision of David Swingle and other San Rafael City...In 2002, 10 presumably lost student produced documentaries were rediscovered." The films were produced in cooperation with The Marin County Bicentennial Commission.
