From the first human settlements to the latest marine explorations, The Golden Shore tells the tale of the history, culture, and changing nature of California’s coasts and ocean. David Helvarg takes the reader on both a geographic and literary journey along the state’s 1,100-mile Pacific coastline, from the Oregon border to the San DiegoTijuana international border fence and out into its whale-, seal-, and shark-rich offshore seamounts, rock isles, and kelp forests. Part history, part travelogue, part love letter, The Golden Shore captures the spirit of the California coast and its mythic place in American culture.
Author and ocean activist David Helvarg, the author of books including Rescue Warriors, 50 Ways to Save the Ocean, and Saved by the Sea, founded and is executive director of the Blue Frontier Campaign. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
