This book chronicles the great state of California through 100 powerful, evocative color photographs with scenes from north to south.

From the fruitful cornucopia of the Central Valley and the solitary ancient pillars of redwood old-growth forests; the soaring granite cliffs of Yosemite Valley and Death Valley's heat-blasted wastes; the sun-drenched meadows of the High Sierra and breathtaking sunsets and coastal mists. Master photographer David Muench and his son, David apply their decades of on-location photographic skills to the making of interpretive views embracing all aspects of the great state.
