Description: Welcome to Rakestraw Books (est. April 1973), a beautiful, well-stocked independent bookshop located in Danville, California; well-known for our selection, our book-loving staff, and our great events.

"Rakestraw Books is a gem: small, perfect, and the more you peer into it, endlessly deep. The love of good books animates and inspires the place; the staff is passionate and smart -- every visit offers equal measures of entertainment and instruction. And Michael Barnard may just be the best bookseller in the Bay Area -- which, given the competition, is high praise indeed." --- Michael Chabon
