This book covers a wide range of areas around Southern California. However, it does need updating and color photos. I'm not sure if the places mentioned are still accessible or if outcrops have been covered up by development. Of the three books I read, R.
G. of N.&C. Calif., R.G. of So. Calf., and this one, only this book discusses the Nipomo Dunes. 5 stars if updated.

very interesting.
This well-prepared and engaging work provides an excellent way for the layman to appreciate points of geological interest in the area. The style is approachable and seeks to simplify, without over-simplifying, and to solicit the reader to use his or her imagination. It is well researched and practical, giving no problems finding places, parking and so on. This book is recommended.
