David Helvarg - The Golden Shore


David Helvarg presents The Golden Shore: California's Love Affair with the Sea ($26.99). Taking the reader on both a geographical and literary history of the state, Helvarg goes from California’s border up north with Oregon down to the border of San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico, and out into the sea with the whales, sharks, seals, kelp forests, and offshore seamounts. He captures the unique spirit of this amazing coast, its mythic place in American culture, and its role in a state whose ongoing natural disasters and unrelenting sense of renewal are intimately linked to its deep connection with an ever-changing sea.  

David Helvarg is the founder and president of the Blue Ocean Campaign, a Washington DC based organization working for ocean and coastal conservation. An award-winning journalist, he has written for the Los Angeles Times, New York Times, Smithsonian, Popular Science, Sierra, and The Nation, and has produced more than forty documentaries for PBS, the Discovery Channel, and others.  His previous books include Rescue Warriors and Saved by the Sea: A Love Story with Fish. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
