California: Portrait of a State

California: Portrait of a State Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's all here: 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, flowering meadows of the High Sierra and breathtaking sunset sky canopies reflecting off coastal mists. The Muenches apply their decades of on-location photographic skills to the making of interpretive views embracing all aspects of California's primal myths and realities. Among the one hundred powerful, evocative color plates within these pages, you will find a California that sings of the breadth and depth and soaring heights of the American spirit.

Synopsis:

California: Portrait of a State is a part of the popular and beautiful Portrait of a Place Series. These are coffee-table quality books for less than $15, a tremendous value. See the world through these magnificent photographs highlighting settings which share a strong sense of place and majesty. Titles in this series include: Alaska, California, Chicago, Colorado, Las Vegas, Michigan, New England, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Washington, Washington DC, Florida, Mount Hood and Orange County.
