The San Francisco Bay Area holds the most extensive system of wild greenbelts of any major metropolitan area in the world. More than 200 parks, preserves, and other protected areas can be found within forty miles of the city. Together, they exceed Yosemite National Park in size, biodiversity, and visitation. With stunning photography and thoughtful text, this book celebrates these separate national, state, regional, county, local, and private entities as a whole for the first time.

Read what Senator Diane Feinstein, Senator Barbara
Boxer, Mayor Willie Brown, and others have to say
about this splendid book!
