Overview

The lure of California remains as powerful today as it was over 450 years ago when Spanish explorers named it after a mythical earthly paradise. Ever since, California has continued to inspire dreams and fulfill promises: from the irresistible draw of gold in the 1840s to the dazzling attraction of Hollywood. The pull of this land of stunning beauty and idyllic weather has made its human landscape as rich and varied as its geography. The Traveler's California Companion accompanies you from the low deserts of Death Valley to lush national parks and along the rugged Pacific coast. You will explore the majestic redwood forests and the wine-rich northern valleys. You will follow the traces of the gold rush and discover cultural highlights from San Francisco to the dream town of Los Angeles and on down south to San Diego, uncovering the contrasts, colors and variety that have made California legend. (5 1/2 x 8 3/4, 384 pages, color photos, maps)
