A Natural History of the Nipomo Mesa Region is as relevant in 2021 as when it was written in 2004. Join author, Corrine Ardoin, on her walk through the history, the love and the controversy surrounding this unique ecosystem. Including a Roadside Geology Tour with Ralph Bishop, Corrine’s book will take you back to a time when the Chumash witnessed their homeland change forever. Explorers, soldiers, surveyors, settlers, townspeople, the railroad, the ranchers, and the highways came to dominate the land. Reading this book may help you to see it as the Chumash had long ago, and even the Dunites who lived their rambling, idyllic lives in the ever-changing hills of sand, The Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes.
