Considered the most complete and balanced treatment of California geography for nearly four decades, this popular text has recently been revised by Gary L. Peters to include new photos, maps, and statistical information - updating our knowledge of the state.

Also new to the fourth edition of California is a complete reorganization of the regional discussions. Metropolitan areas are treated first and in most depth, followed by the agricultural regions, mountainous areas, and deserts.

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
  • Complete road map of California
  • Comprehensive discussions of all regions of the state of California
  • Topical sidebars, including everything from basin and
  • range landforms to viticulture
  • A thorough index
