Featuring more than 100 stunning color photographs of the diverse natural beauty of the Golden State by acclaimed photographer, Galen Rowell, California the Beautiful pairs these images with quoatations from famous California writers and visitors to create a unique portrait of the Land of the Second Chance.

As merican stnds to the rest of the world, so stands California to America -- a shining promise of endless possibility. This exquisite elebration of the Golden State has been updated with a new introduction, new cover design and an enlarged size to suit the grandeur of its subject.  California the Beautiful is both a portrait of the state;s diverse naturel beauty and, through the incredbile voices of its writers, a testament to the ever-renewing spirit that it has come to embody. Aldous Huxley, British author turned Hollywood resident, described the California dream as "this great crystal of light, whose base  is as large as Europe and whose height, for all practical purposes, is infinite." Among the other authors offering praise are Maya Angelou, Mary Austin Ray Bradbury, Joan Didion, Gretel Ehrlich Lawrence Ferlinghetti, M.F.K. Fisher, Robertson Jeffers, Jack Kerouac, Clarence King, jack London, Henry Millr, john Muir, William Saroyan, April Smith, John Steinbeck, Robert Louis Stevenson, Mark Twain, Nathanael West, and Walt Whitman.

Land of innovation and opportunity, California is both a dream and a reality.California the Beautiful is a gift for all who have felt the lure of this dual promise and who have marveled at the unrivaled beauty of this quintessentially American land.
