Synopses & Reviews
The Beauty of the Big Sur coast is legend. Thousands visit it each year on their way from San Francisco to Los Angeles. But as the fame of Big Sur has spread, its colorful pioneer history has been largely forgotten. The once isolated, sombre and mysterious landscape, made famous by narrative poems of Robinson Jeffers, has disappeared along with tales of feuds and murders. Rosalind Wall, a native herself, shares her memories and knowledge of its colorful past. She tells of the old timers and homesteaders that first settled the area and does so in a richly engrossing narrative.
