Supposed to be an excellent coffee table book. Gilliam was the "environment" writer for the San Francisco Chronicle and authored the wonderful Weather of the San Francisco Bay Region and The Natural World of San Francisco.

Oldie but goodie -- I'm surprised it's never been updated. Color reproduction isn't great, even for 1983, but nice large-format photos, unmatcheable perspectives, and cool historic photos compared to then-current views, 33 years ago or more.

My copy was marked $6 at the used bookstore, but $4 trade credit for 3 old pocketbooks brought my out-of-pocket costs to a modest $2.15. Got my money's worth ;-)
