What you'll get in Big Sur: A Wild Coast & Lonely is a native's history of that storied place with its many ranchers, artists, outlaws, and wild ones. As well as an account of Rosalind's own life there, growing up before even Highway 1 was built. A satisfying read, and one that will, in all likelihood; one, fill in the bits about Big Sur that Zandy's Bride (Liv Ullmann as Surprise Cougar Mail Order Bride sent to The Rancher Gene Hackman) failed to provide; and two, force you to make the magical trip. All you need now are a few non-native, frequent-visitor quickie suggestions:

Walk in the woods: Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park

Have fun! - G.G.
