Format: Paperback
I had a fine time reading Exploring the North Coast. It covers all the little towns and tourist spots all the way up the coast on hwy1 and hwy 101. More interesting are the different Rocks and Rock formations all up the coast. The California coast has some of the greatest and most powerful Rocks of any place, and this guide mentions more than a few. However it does cover the disturbing trend that civilzation has of mutilating and destroying the giant rocks that get in their way. Like Goat Rock who was hacked away and dumped to form a useless harbor. This book is unique in that it is inclusive of some information about California Indians, in the context of where they live. This information helps one get a more well-rounded view of the history of California.
