Overview

From a rugged, mountainous northern shore fringed with redwood forests to the inviting beaches of southern California; from the world-famous cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles to the historic Spanish towns of Santa Barbara and Monterey; from the wild Big Sur to the quaint fishermans villages of Mendocino and Eureka, The California Coast describes the look and local color of this 1,200 mile strip of the Pacific Rim. Visitors and residents alike will treasure this tribute to the breathtakingly beautiful California coastline.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A veteran travel writer of guides to San Francisco and Northern California, with at least four titles in multiple editions, Misuraca has expanded her territory by heading south from the Redwoods down the coast to San Diego. In this colorful portrait of the West Coast, she describes the environment, towns and cities, and attractions that make this 1200-mile coastline an exciting place to explore. The ten essays, providing both current and historical perspectives, are accompanied by over 120 color photographs that are sure to stimulate any armchair traveler's imagination. This is not a traditional travel guide, as it does not provide detailed information on attractions; nor does it include listings of restaurants and places to stay as does, for instance, Don Neuwirth's The California Coast: A Traveler's Companion (LJ 4/15/98). It does, however, stand alone as an excellent introduction to the California coastline for students and visitors alike. Recommended for all libraries in California as well as for libraries that wish to supplement their basic travel collections on the Golden State.-John McCormick, New Hampshire State Lib., Concord Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
