Historical Image of the Week: John and Eve Muir

John and Eve in Oregon

John and Eve Muir, original publishers of The People’s Guide to Mexico. John wrote, with Tosh Gregg, the cult classic How to Keep Your Volkswagon Alive, a Manual of Step-by-Step procedures for the Compleat Idiot. John and Eve were at the center of a creative group of friends who met each year for wild “beach parties” in Mexico. We remain an extended family. John died just before I was born, but Eve was an important person in my life. Fabulous, and quirky, and kind. During the final months of her life, I had the pleasure to work with her in New Orleans on John’s final manuscript, which had been languishing unpublished since his death in 1977. Stay tuned.
