Peter Wolf Huebner, the Sierra County Supervisor for District 2, is a well-known author in Sierra County. Peter’s latest book, an autobiography, “Reaching for the Stars and Beyond” –My Unbelievable Life Story Before and After My Friend Ziggy is being released early as a fund raiser for the Western Sierra Senior Center purchase.
This book is a personal account of Peter’s life from birth in Germany to the present day here in Sierra County.
Since moving to Sierra County Peter has been an enthusiastic volunteer and contributor to many community endeavors and this book is one more example of Peter’s generosity and love of Sierra County. All profits from book sales the first year will be donated through the Ziggy Huebner Foundation to assist with the acquisition, development and successful operation of the Western Sierra Residential Center (WSRC), in Downieville.
WSRC was established in 1998 with a vision of providing assisted living for local seniors who could no longer live alone in the community. Although this vision is still a dream, the building has evolved into a place for seniors to share meals and community friendship. There is a debt owed on the building that is due in December 2013 and there is an urgency to raise the funds to be able to maintain the building as a viable senior services center.
Peter says his personal goal is to donate a minimum of $200,000 to the cause, and the profits from this book will help attain this goal.

Huebner’s story seem incredible, the author has included documentation of the time of the shipwreck. A touching and memorable true story. “A labor of love”–Dorothy Rice Bennett — The Log, San Diego, Calif.
Like a Disney family movie. The book is more the tale of devotion shared by a man and his dog than adventure on the high seas. And it has all the ingredients of a Disney family movie: man saves dog, man and dog become close and sail single-handedly, a heroic mission, a shipwreck, dog saves man, tough times fellow, but man finds a renewed purpose and they live happily ever after–Janet Kettelhut — Alameda Journal, Alameda, California
