Land of Four Seasons


April 1, 2023

“Tootie would go with her mother and brothers to stay with her Dad, who worked as a miner in Randsburg. I lived in Tehachapi and didn’t have a car, so I’d walk to Randsburg to see her.”

– Hooks Anderson

Hooks started dating his wife, Tootie, when he was 17 and she was 15. It’s 60 miles to drive from Tehachapi to Randsburg, slightly shorter as the raven flies or the lovesick teenage boy walks. Hooks and Tootie were married for more than 65 years.
