About this title

Synopsis:

Discover the riches and variety of California hand-in-hand with the experts!

This travel guide offers a unique nine-day tour of the state, starting in Los Angeles, going up the wild Pacific coast to San Francisco, on to the Wine Country, Berkeley and Oakland, then inland to the Sierra Nevada, Lake Tahoe, and finally returning south through the Death Valley and the Mojave Desert. Travel through spectacular scenery and cosmopolitan cities with this eye-opening book, and you'll find out just what gives California its special character. The authors comment on everything that's likely to catch your attentionÑfrom the lay of the land to the taste of the food, from La Brea Tar Pits to Lake Mono, from banana orchards to the giant redwoods, from surfing beaches to snow-covered mountains, from old Spanish missions to the newest immigrants' restaurants. 

California Landscapes makes the best of traveling companions: compact, informed, and lively. You'll want to read and re-read it as you plan, take, and relive your trip!
