About this title

Synopsis:

Few places in the United States provide a pastoral landscape as appealing and memorable as that of western Marin County, a rural area just north of California's Golden Gate. Winding roads curve around vast panoramas of land and sea, enhanced by family farms tucked into unspoiled canyons reaching deep into the heart of the countryside. Almost unchanged in over a century, rural Marin has inspired landscape artists who strive to capture its essence and reflect the human and natural history that makes West Marin a special and beloved place. Illustrated by prominent landscape artists,Ranches & Rolling Hills presents 135 artworks selected from ten years of the Ranches & Rolling Hills Landscape Art Show, held annually in the town of Nicasio, California. The works exemplify a special partnership between family farmers, artists, and conservationists. The farmers whose ranches, animals, and crops are depicted here are lifelong stewards of the land, safeguarding a personal and community heritage. The artists are dedicated to helping preserve the land that inspires their art.

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
