Very California: Travels Through the Golden State

E-book

An artist shares her adventures through the Golden State from the Sonoma to San Diego in this charmingly illustrated travel memoir.

A fisherman on the Santa Monica Pier; the vineyards of Napa Valley; surfers in Malibu; and the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset. In lively watercolors, sketches, and stories, Gessler shares her adventures on the road, capturing the color and character of California as she drives driving from north to south. She and her husband, Paul—designated driver and food lover—let curiosity and hunger be their guide.

With pen and brush, Gessler works on the spot, bringing to life the cities, towns, and countrysides as well as the details that make them special. Her intimate journal is filled with colorful people, beaches, flowers, architecture, animals, trails, memorable meals, and movie stars—or at least the gates in front of their houses. Organized by region, each chapter opens with a map and driving route. Peppered throughout are amusing tidbits about all the things that make California so very California.

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    Birgitta Johansson

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    Birgitta Lindh

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
