Land of innovation and opportunity, California is both dream and reality. California the Beautiful is a gift for all who have felt the lure of this dual promise and who have marveled at the unrivaled beauty of this quintessentially American land.
"This collection of images shows off the Golden State’s most scenic vistas...the state’s diverse natural beauty is augmented with inspirational words from Maya Angelou, Joan Didion, John Muir and many more."
"Peter Beren edits this gorgeous collection...pairing some eighty-five images from the photographer Galen Rowell with the voices of some fifty California writers, from Maya Angelou to Ray Bradbury and Henry Miller. A lovely, keepsake editiion for any California collection."
"As a California native and former photographer and travel expert, I can truly say that the photographs in California the Beautiful are the next best things to being there."

If you order this book thinking you are getting a decent sized picture book of california landscapes, think again. This book is much smaller than I expected. It is 7" by 7", smaller than some of my novels. The pictures are beautiful, but I would advise checking out the books in the store before ordering this one.Was this review helpful?
