Your book will be good to promote especially to tourists visiting San Diego, it gives such a great overview of the topography of the area. The history side of it is important especially since we are in Old Town.

I am an artist, so Linda’s chapter on the Indian Canyons were helpful in showing me beautiful places to capture images of the desert with my camera.
