The introductory chapter of this book is a lovely panegyric to the Golden State pre-war (WWII); it reads almost like poetry. Addresses ecological and conservation issues in a quite balanced way...not to be confused with the politically correct 'environmentalism' of the 21st century. Dasmann was Professor of Ecology at Humboldt State (CA) University, and U.C. Santa Cruz. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
First words
It is easy to write of distant lands visited for a month, or a year or two, viewed objectively and then left behind. It is difficult to write of your homeland.
Quotations
California occupies a badly fractured and unstable segment of the thin earth crust, along a coast rising from the sea.
