Overview

A celebration of California by its most renowned photographer, this book features many rarely seen images and an intriguing selection of writings about the state by classic and contemporary authors. This volume collects for the first time a full range of Adams' California images. Sixty-five beautifully reproduced photographs capture some of California's most inimitable vistas - San Francisco, the Golden Gate, Point Reyes, the North Coast, redwood forests, Mt. Lassen, orchards in Santa Clara, Lake Tahoe, lettuce fields in the Salinas Valley, and the gold country, among many others. Accompanying these beautiful photographs are evocative poems, essays, and passages about California by a wide range of notable writers, including Robert Louis Stevenson, Mark Twain, John Muir, Robinson Jeffers, John Steinbeck, John McPhee, Wallace Stegner, and Joan Didion.
