In his rousing foreword to The California Coast, Jean-Michel Cousteau writes, "Karen Misuraca is our guide to the fabled land of California, intorducing us to the state's natural and human history in a truly inspired feat of storytelling. Misuraca and photographer Gary Crabbe move beyond the glamour of California's culture to capture the grandeur of its natural endowments." A treasured keepsake to leaf through a hundred times, and to give to people who have never laid eyes on the glorious coastline, and to those who love it. A visually stunning discovery of natural and manmade landmarks, wildlife and beaches, state and national parks, and national treasures, such as the Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary and Point Reyes National Seashore. A hundred color photos enrich Misuraca's essays, which celebrate the soul of the coast, from the stories of an oysterman on Tomales Bay to a surfer dude at Malibu, a Chinatown legend and the savior of an ancient Redwood tree named Luna.
