The acclaimed and successful authors and self-publishers of two fine books about Point Reyes have hit one out of the park with their latest book, California Trip, arguably the finest and most thought-provoking look at the Golden State ever available.
This is a book about real California — from the era of peace and love and protest marches to the freedom of the open road and the highs of California's wild places. It offers an uncensored look at California that captures its freewheeling spirit and beauty and, one might argue, the Golden State's essence.
California Trip celebrates both California's natural beauty and creative spark, while observing its precipitous growth. A thinking person's guide to the country's most diverse state, outrageous and insightful, California Trip takes the pulse of California, from its unique and bustling cities to its most remote and dramatic natural areas.
With over 600 gorgeous photographs and an insider's point of view from decades of traveling throughout California and pondering its complexities, California Trip shows the state's organic farming movement, far corners, devastating earthquakes and wildfire infernos, as well as its famous wineries and varied peoples, from hippies to nerds. For visitors and residents alike, California Trip is a journey with both thrills and spiritual meaning. Experience the excitement and freedom of California, and discover or revisit its amazing coastline, alpine peaks, and shimmering deserts. It's a trip you want to take, and a book like no other.
You could easily argue that your favorite ten images from this book are worth the price of this lavish hardcover, but it offers so much more! Hundreds of stunning images delve into every aspect of the Golden State, including Big Sur and Point Lobos, the North Coast and redwoods, Yosemite and the High Sierra, the Eastern Sierra including the ghost town of Bodie, Mono Lake and hot springs, Death Valley and Joshua Tree National Parks, and the urban wonders of San Francisco and Los Angeles. Images in the book are powerful, carefully chosen, and full of surprises.
2007, 300 pages, 11.375" x 11.125", full-color dust jacket (choice of 2 cover images: hippie bus or surfer at Rodeo Beach), 525 color photographs, 65 black & white photographs. Published by Color & Light Editions.
