The new edition has maintained the regional approach and continues to incorporate all the best features of the previous edition. Not just a geography text alone, California touches on the history of people, places, and things. The text is up-to-date, written in a readable style, and full of useful maps and photos. It gives readers a very good impression of what life is like today in the state of California.

Outstanding features include:

  • Excellent maps of regions and major cities
  • Full-color CD-ROM enclosed in each book
  • Comprehensive discussions of all regions of the state of California
  • Topical sidebars, including everything from basin and range landforms to viticulture
  • A thorough index
