California: Portrait of a State

Graphic Arts Center Publishing Co., Oct 1, 2004 - Photography - 112 pages

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.
