LandMarks leads the reader on a tour of the changing vistas and enduring landmarks of the Bay Area's past four hundred years. Over 220 evocative duotone images by photographer/author Kennard complement vivid descriptions by explorers, settlers, missionaries, immigrants, and present-day commentators - all participants in the great adventure of forging a life in California. Accompanying captions unfold the story of a diverse landscape and the effotrs of people through the ages to put their "mark" on the land.

Follow Kennard and explore all nine Bay Area counties, from Mount S. Helena to New Almaden, from the Farallon Islands to Mount Diablo. LandMarks adds immeasurably to a personal appreciation of the beauty and history of the San Francisco Bay Area. Packed with fascinating detail on the region's natural and human history, this is the book for visitors, newcomers, and longtime residents who treasure the past and want to plan for the future.
