The Natural History of Big Sur
by Paul Henson (1996)

A superb reference guide to all California, with detailed descriptions of Central Coast parks, creatures, plants and wildlife sanctuaries.

A classic guide to the Monterey Bay and the sanctuary that protects a fifth of California's coastal waters.

A publication of the University of California and the Monterey Bay Aquarium, this excellent guide includes sections on natural history, wildlife, sightseeing opportunities and much more.

Beautiful and surprisingly fragile, the ecosystems of Big Sur are covered in careful detail in this handsome book, illustrated with maps, photography, drawings, species lists, and a bibliography.
