Big Sur is a river and a region on California’s Central Coast. Extending for 75 miles along the Pacific shore, from south of Carmel to north of San Simeon, the Big Sur Coast is defined by the backdrop of the rugged Santa Lucia Mountains as they abruptly descend to meet the sea. For millennia the home of native people, Americans and Europeans began to settle Big Sur country even before California became a state. They established farms, cattle ranches, gold mines and sawmills. This book combines outstanding photographs from 40 collections, ranging from family albums to institutional archives.
