Mapping The Pacific Coast: From Coronado To Lewis And Clark
~ by Henry Wendt
“This 98 page 4-color catalog, Mapping the Pacific Coast: Coronado to Lewis and Clark, the Quivira Collection, has been produced as a companion to the exhibition, helping to flesh out the many layers that still remain to be discovered beyond the exhibition boundaries. We experience this book as we might a magical journey, engaging in the thrill of a mysterious frontier, the riveting stories of scallywags and courageous explorers, and the beauty of the images themselves.”
~ Natasha Boas, Chief Curator, Sonoma County Museum.
Catalogs are available for $30 each, including shipping and handling (in the US). Please contact us to order copies of the catalog.
