100 Views of the Golden Gate
See details
100 Views of the Golden Gate



With a bow to the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), whose woodblock series 100 Views of Mt. Fuji celebrates Japan’s iconic mountain, this book is a lush photographic paean to San Francisco’s world-famous icon—the majestic Golden Gate. In this tribute to the natural wonders of the San Francisco landscape, as well as the enduring marvel of the Golden Gate Bridge, professional photographer/writer and Bay Area native Harold Davis has created a collection of over 100 striking digital photographs of the Gate—the strait that connects the San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean and the Bridge itself—taken from different vantage points, times of day and night, and seasons. Awash in color and mood, the all-color digital images in this book show that the Golden Gate is worth a look again and again and again.

* Includes reproductions of well-known Hokusai prints, as well as back stories for each Golden Gate photo.
* Author of a number of other photography books, Harold Davis also writes the popular Photoblog 2.

50 Best Short Hikes San Diego
Jerry Schad


50 Best Short Hikes: San Diego is the first book in a new version of a series Wilderness Press initially launched in the 1990s. This 50 Best title sports a fresh, modern design while maintaining the original concept: It's a guidebook for busy outdoor lovers who want beautiful hikes to experience in limited spurts of time.

With all of its trail distances tallying only 1 to 8 miles, 50 Best Short Hikes: San Diego showcases routes that can be completed in just an hour, a morning, or an afternoon. But these capsule distances are anything but dull or monotonous. Instead, myriad terrains beckon within these pages. Some trails wind along the coast, others weave through the canyons, and still others ascend mountains or meander into forests.

Because of the attainable distances and the diverse land- and seascapes presented here, 50 Best Short Hikes: San Diego also appeals to hikers with physical limitations and to families with small children. All readers will appreciate the wealth of information about each trail area's varied history, geology, and amenities.

As a longtime resident of San Diego and an avid outdoorsman, the author shares his favorite panoramas and pocket nirvanas in this Southern California region. He knows the nooks and crannies of his destinations, and he corrals them into this easy-to-follow, practical-to-use book.

He divides San Diego into 5 micro-regions, with an overview map of the entire area. Then each individual entry includes a detailed map, directions to the trailhead, an at-a-glance info box, and personably written descriptive text. Design, information, and the author's writing style make this a compelling resource for local residents, and a keepsake for visitors.
