Overview

Over California is a unique and spectacular aerial portrait of America's "Golden State." Through dramatic images photographed high above the cities and mountains of California, this book provides unusual and beautiful perspectives of a place that is, according to author Kevin Starr, a state of mind as well as a state.

From surfers riding the crests of waves off hidden faultlines, to the awesome splendors of the seldom-seen Modoc Plateau, Over California captures for the earthbound a breathtaking vision of the landscape and its people.

Pioneering photographer Reg Morrison flew over 23,000 miles in an aerial odyssey to cover every county in the state. Celebrated California historian Kevin Starr tells the fascinating stories behind these photographs in a spellbinding narrative that moves through time as it moves over the land, from the first Spanish settlers of California to political and environmental issues that will affect Californians for many generations to come.

This is an important book that provides a significant new perspective in words and photographs of America's most populous state.
