The Devil�s Punchbowl: A Cultural & Geographical Map of California Today is an anthology edited by Red Hen Press�s Managing Editor, Kate Gale, and Los Angeles Times reporter and editor Veronique de Turenne. Essays were commissioned from writers living in California, who were asked to reflect on an aspect of the state�s geography, natural or man-made: Alcatraz Island and its prison; Manzanar and Mt. Whitney; Big Sur and Joshua Tree; Los Angeles� oil derricks and Mountain View�s Google headquarters; the farms of the Central Valley and the redwoods of the Northern Coastland. Does Alcatraz, from its important role in Native American activist history to today�s defunct prison, retain meaning beyond a tourist attraction? How is the expanding border fence between Southern California and Mexico affecting, economically and psychologically, the individuals who live near it? California�s outsized cultural and economic impact on both our country and the rest of the world necessitate a continual taking stock, to prevent losing ourselves in the state�s constant transformations. The Devil�s Punchbowl captures a pivotal time in our country�s history, as some of the state�s most recognized, complex, and accomplished writers describe their relationship with California�s ever-changing geographic, economic, and psychic landscape.

The rugged San Gabriel Mountains, rising starkly from the edge of the Los Angeles Basin, provide a sharp contrast to the hustle and bustle of the city and its surroundings. Angelinos across the county (a population of almost 10 million), as well as visitors from out of state, welcome the opportunity to escape from city chaos into the quiet wilderness. This 9th edition of the classic Wilderness Press guide has been revised and updated to reflect recent trail changes, and now includes trips in the Fish Canyon Narrows, along Alder Creek, and to Jones Peak, as well as perennial favorites such as Old Baldy, Mt. Wilson, and Devils Punchbowl. Each detailed trip description notes the distance, difficulty, and ideal season, and points out the highlights of the trail. The guide includes a companion 4-color waterproof topo map.

16 Hour Road Trip Oregon Coast

Author and photographer Marques Vickers escorts you on a scenic whirlwind adventure along the picturesque Oregon coastline. With his edition “16-Hour Road Trip: Oregon Coast”, Vickers begins his pictorial journey from the Art Deco styled Isaac Lee Patterson Bridge to the stunning sunset descent below the Neskowin seastack cove. His over 125 images capture the natural splendor of the Oregon Sand Dunes National Park, Humbug Mountain’s base creeks and fauna, Battle Rock, Bullards Beach, Spinreel Campground, Tahkenitch, Beaver and Lagoon Creeks, Haceta Head, Devil’s Churn, Seat Rock Wayside, Yaquina Head and the Devil’s Punchbowl. At each site, Vickers provides detailed historical background and insight into each destination’s significance and topography. En route, Vickers’ camera feasts on the design imagery of the notable Haceta Head and Yaquina Head Lighthouses and the Patterson, Bullards and Yaquina Bay Bridges. The Oregon Sand Dunes National Park, which stretches forty miles from the Coos River in North Bend to the Siuslaw River in Florence, is prolifically immortalized from numerous photographic perspectives. The unspoiled Dunes comprise the largest expanse of sand dunes in North America. Two significant coastal rock formations, the Devil’s Churn and Punchbowl are intimately photographed detailing the swirling turbulence, sprays and force generated by the relentlessly pounding surf within. The photographic visit is encapsulated within a sixteen-hour visit and locations chosen based on their beauty and accessibility. Vickers freely admits that equally worthy sites were bypassed due to time and daylight constraints. The author concludes that any excursion along the Oregon coastline mandates an extended time commitment and closer scrutiny. For the road trip warrior, this abbreviated jaunts skims a most desirable surface of a 250-mile highway stretch. Lesser traveled and renowned than its California counterpart, the scenery compares equally in aesthetics without the accompanying crowds.

'A very well written book about geology and geological history' Sir David Attenborough, The Times 'I travelled to Haverfordwest to get to the past. From Paddington Station a Great Western locomotive took me on a journey westwards from London further and further back into geological time, from the age of mammals to the age of trilobites...' So begins this enthralling exploration of time and place in which Richard Fortey peels away the top layer of the land to reveal the hidden landscape - the rocks which contain the story of distant events, which dictate not only the personality of the landscape, but the nature of the soil, the plants that grow in it and the regional characteristics of the buildings. We travel with him as our guide throughout the British Isles and as the rocks change so we learn to read the clues they contain: that Britain was once divided into two parts separated by an ocean, that Scottish malt whisky, Harris tweed, slate roofs and thatched cottages can be traced back to tumultuous events which took place many millions of years ago. The Hidden Landscape has become a classic in popular geology since its first publication in 1993. This new edition is fully updated and beautifully illustrated.
