Coastal Zen

farmers market publishing, Coastal Zen Book

Sam Peck takes you on a photographic pilgrimage along California’s remote and wild Central Coast. Setting out from Montana de Oro, the narrative and photography take you up the coast through Morro Bay, Cayucos, Cambria, San Simeon and Ragged Point to Pacific Valley, just south of Big Sur. You won’t find much evidence of “civilization” in this book except for the thoughtful quotes by some Zen-minded characters sprinkled among these pages.
