The small towns and villages of America's 'Golden State' are perennial travellers' favourites. Much larger than many other American states, California seems like a whole country in itself, with a nation's worth of scenery: rugged sierras, fog-laced headlands, golden beaches, and rolling oak-studded ranch land. This book showcases the most picturesque small places of California through Nik Wheeler's stunning photography and the perceptive commentaries of leading California travel writer, Joan Tapper. This superb celebration of one of the most varied of American states is rounded out by lists of essential tourism information and of places to stay and eat.

HASH(0x96d25a74) von 5 Sternen Beautiful lush photography but... 6. Mai 2008
Von Lucy by the sea - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book is filled with colorful lush photographs of California towns and villages. It is for memories and admiration, not information. The photos are carefully posed for the most romantic interpretation and atmosphere. Some of them present an illusion.

I live in one of the towns and had to laugh. In one group of photos, if the photographer had simply turned 180 degrees you would have seen a 4 lane boulevard heavy with semis, trucks and cars on weekdays and tourists on weekends. In another series of pictures just up the road, the 101 freeway was less than 50 feet behind the photographer. It is choked with cars at all times of the day and night and comes to a standstill if there is an accident.

Still, the book presents a lovely picture of a California that exists as a Shangri-la. It is enjoyable with the above caveat for those of us who live here.

HASH(0x96d25cc0) von 5 Sternen Beautiful book 14. Oktober 2007
Von JK - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I purchased this book as a "thank you" gift for a friend in Germany who had visited many of the Coastal towns of California during a vacation long ago. He loved the book and marveled at all the places he remembered from time spent in "The Golden State". Plus, pictures of towns that he hadn't visited were so interesting to him that I'm sure they'll give him ideas for any upcoming visits he may be planning.

The photographs are beautiful and the commentaries interesting. While it doesn't highlight the rugged beauty of places such as Yosemite or the California Coast, it serves to reinforce the down-to-earth beauty that can be found in simple, every day towns.

HASH(0x96d2827c) von 5 Sternen A photographic journey of small-town California 12. Januar 2008
Von North City - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
A book worthy a beautiful state! Images of glitzy LA or cosmopolitan SF frequently overshadow the many other destinations featured in this book. Of course being an overview, the towns listed here are given as cursory highlights without much depth. Nonetheless, the book tantalizes like a plate of appetizers. The diner will have to follow up with his own entree should he want to savor a particular site.

HASH(0x96d28030) von 5 Sternen Nice reminder of old California 3. Mai 2012
Von Blue in Washington - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a nicely photographed coffee table book that highlights some of the less well-known parts of California as well as the more famous and iconic spots in the state. I bought the book as a transplanted Californian who wants to remember the place as it was "back in the time". The nicely produced volume does do that visually. It's less substantive in its text.

What I especially liked about "The Most Beautiful...." were the sections on towns in the north of the state, where things really haven't changed as radically as they have in the south. One of the few entries for the far south, San Juan Capistrano, was really little more than a photo layout of the old mission in that town. There's truly not much else to present although it's a pleasant enough suburb.

If you've traveled down Route 1, done the Wine Country or toured the Gold Country, you would certainly enjoy owning this book as a momento of your travels. Before such travels and looking for info about interesting stops, this isn't going to be much help, other than a visual preview. I'm happy to have the book in any event.
