"One of the leading American wood engravers, Richard Wagener has created a visual account of his wanderings throughout California in this lavish work. In thirty original prints and short prose pieces describing them, Wagener chronicles a journey that begins and ends in Los Angeles with stops in the San Jacinto Mountains, the Antelope Valley, Sonoma County, and the Sierra Nevada. Like John Muir and Gary Snyder, Richard Wagener is an epic explorer, observer, and interpreter of California."
