David Helvarg - The Golden Shore (Sausalito)

Tuesday, August 22, 2017 - 6:00pm

From the first human settlements to the latest marine explorations, The Golden Shore tells the tale of the history, culture, and changing nature of California’s coasts and ocean. David Helvarg takes the reader on both a geographic and literary journey along the 1,100-mile Pacific coastline, from the Oregon border to the San Diego/Tijuana international border fence and out into its whale-, seal-, and shark-rich offshore seamounts, rock isles, and kelp forests.

Part history, part travelogue, part love letter, The Golden Shore tells the story of California’s majestic coastline and ocean. Helvarg captures the spirit of the Californian coast, its mythic place in American culture, and its role in a state whose ongoing natural disasters and unremitting sense of renewal are intimately linked to its deep connection with an ever-changing sea.

David Helvarg is the author of six books, including Rescue Warriors, 50 Ways to Save the Ocean, and Saved by the Sea. He is founder and executive director of Blue Frontier and cofounder of the Peter Benchley Ocean Awards. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
