2 in stock



Located on the Pacific coast between San Francisco and Los Angeles, Cambria developed as a hub for lumbering, mining, whaling, and dairying in the 19th century. Over time, it became increasingly important to adopt sustainable land stewardship practices. Over the last 20 years protection of the forests and watersheds and marine life increased. Currently, approximately 68% of the Cambria pines oak forest are protected. The highway going north from Cambria, was developed in 1937 and Hearst Castle was opened as a State Park in 1958. These developments combined with affordable automobiles and the construction of roads to the east turned the locale into a vacation destination.

This book provides valuable and illuminating historical descriptions and pictures of native flora, fauna, cultural histories and fascinating photographs. A portal to the past that increases our appreciation of the presence. This book is a great addition to both the visitor from out of town and for a local who wants to learn more about there home.

The cool climate, rugged cliffs, beaches, and signature Monterey pine forest make Cambria an unforgettable place with a interesting history.
