    A glorious compendium of prints, poetry and history of the Big Sur coast, illustrated with the most incredibly beautiful woodcuts and linoleum cuts by Tom Killion--the perfect match of artist and subject. The Big Sur coast is so spectacular, yet it spawns so many banal paintings and ho hum photographs. This is masterwork, which seeks a new way of seeing, a new way of using the materials to say something original about the landscape.

The Big Sur coast is so spectacular, yet it spawns so many banal paintings and ho hum photographs. This is masterwork, which seeks a new way of seeing, a new way of using the materials to say something original about the landscape. The text, pulled together by poet Gary Snyder--includes the work of everyone from Robinson Jeffers to TS Eliot--is a book to savor forever. Lore of the Coast beginning with the native Miwoks and Esselins, through the 'horseback' era of the Californios, Richard Henry Dana, and into the bohemian era, Jeffers and London, and on up to now. Can't wait to add the Heyday book of the High Sierra and the one of Mt. Tamalpais by the same team of Tom Killion and Gary Snyder. I hear the mermaids singing, each to each… in this book, they do sing for us.

    This book is exquisite, providing a history of the California coast; a combination of Tom Killion's radiant prints, prose and poetry by Gary Snyder, as well as excerpts from writers like Jaime de Angulo, Robert Hass, and Jane Hirshfield, among numerous others.
