About this title


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.
