Let's Explore Niles: "California's Birthplace of Motion Pictures" (Paperback)
In "Let's Explore Niles", 4-year-old children's author, Zachary Malott takes readers on a special journey down memory lane with the stars of the silent movies. From 1912 to 1916, screen legends like Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford, and Boll Anderson, all made countless silent short films in the small Northern California town of Niles. Many early silent westerns and classics like Chaplin's "The Tramp" were filmed just outside town in Niles Canyon. Among the great things in Niles are vintage running steam engines and locomotives that will take you on an hour and a half journey through time and the famed Niles Canyon. Vintage buses, Charlie Chaplin lookalikes and the friendless people you'll ever meet.
This is 4-year-old Zachary Malott's, forth published book written with his father. The Boston based father and son duo create entertaining and award winning children's books which take children on an entertaining journey to interesting places and locations.
