Book Description


Santa Rosa Island: A Photographic Panorama is a visual journey of the ranching and natural history of Santa Rosa Island, California.


Established as a safe location to raise cattle away from the mainland, Santa Rosa Island is one of the Channel Islands off the West Coast of California.

Over 150 years of ranching led to a unique balance between 7,000 head of cattle, ranchers, horses, and transport ships, as well as a small military base during World War 2.

This unique book features 200 pages of photographs from the private collections of the last ranching family to live on the island.

Channel Island foxes, elephant seals, and sea anemones are interspersed with ranch houses, cowboys, and empty beaches; all combined in this unique look at a piece of California History.

Whether you are a rancher, history lover, photographer, naturalist, or Californian, this book is for you.-via Polyverse Publications website
