The new book “Loving Laguna: A Local’s Guide to Laguna Beach”, by Skill Howell delves into the history and the ambiance of Laguna Beach. According to Howell:
“Laguna Beach, the jewel of the California Riviera, is a unique town formed from a fascinating history. First a gathering place for homesteaders of an obscure faith in the 1870s, then the preeminent art colony of the West Coast for early California Impressionists, a busy site for movies with “sound” in the ’30s and home to stars before Malibu, a player in the rise of the surfing culture with surfer-businessmen like Hobie Alter and Charles “Tex” Haines, and finally home to the conservationists who created the Laguna Greenbelt, the nation’s most important urban wilderness. ”
