This book opens up a very new perspective for this stretch of the Northern California Coast. The writing is conversational and, as I read, I could picture a walk with the author in the very places he writes about. The geologic perspective adds so much to an hour or a day visiting the places noted in the Road Log. Visitors (especially first-time visitors) will want to have a copy close at hand so as to answer the inevitable question, “How’d that rock get there?”
Shaping the Sonoma-Mendocino Coast is indispensable for those who come here with preconceived notions of what the California Coast looks like, and why it’s so different here in the Sonoma-Mendocino region. Locals will be delighted with a greater appreciation of features and landmarks we see everyday. From the first page, the author makes it possible to see the coast in our mind’s eye, even imagining how the topography might have looked millions of years ago. It’s a delightful read and entirely readable. If I wasn’t already an environmentalist, I would be upon reading this book. Kudos!― Linda Bell | Executive Director
