Overview

Insight Guide: Northern California is much more than a guidebook. A team of leading photographers and writers provides real insight into this land of goldseekers and towering redwoods. By combining the vivid photojournalism and illuminating text which Apa Publications pioneered, they take the reader on a fascinating tour of the entire region, from Big Sur to the High North.

The book begins with a lively history, followed by a series of essays designed to give insight into the culture of Californians, covering earthquakes and the great outdoors, the high-tech revolution and the literary scene. This is followed by a complete rundown on the places worth seeing and the sites worth visiting, complete with detailed maps. Finally, a full listings section covers museums and events, travel and inns, wineries and restaurants.

From the hills of San Francisco and the Wine Country to magnificent Yosemite Valley and the High Sierras, it's all in this volume. Insight Guide: Northern California entertains while it informs, inspires while it explains. It's the only guidebook to the area you'll ever need.
