Book Review: Sacred Sites

Lavishly illustrated with black and white photography reminiscent of Ansel Adams, author Susan Suntree presents a lyrical, wise celebration of Southern California’s long history starting four billion years ago when the continents rose from the sea floor. With particular emphasis on the myths, songs and legends of the assorted indigenous peoples who occupied the region plus a credible amount of accurate science, Suntree plumbs the natural world and The People’s place within it. Told with warmth and rare appreciation, this will delight Natives and non-natives alike while instilling a sense of wonder at the hidden corners of the world around them.
