About this book

Whether focused with intimacy on the unblinking and thoughtful eye of a mountain lion or on the moon that seems delicately balanced atop a distant ridge, Dennis E. Anderson lays before us an unusual bay that is full of surprise and unexpected delight. We immediately recognize the photographs in his book as truthful yet exotic at the same time. Individually they move or even startle. Together they present a Bay as no one person has ever seen it: from the deck of a boat or the seat of a small helicopter, from beneath the surface of the water or through the blades of marsh grasses, from dozens of angles and perspectives. As we move through Hidden Treasures of San Francisco Bay, our senses are awakened. With intelligent and knowledgeable text, Hidden Treasures of San Francisco Bay will enlarge our vision, expand our understanding and, it is hoped, inspire us with a desire to protect and cherish, to become caretakers of what is surely one of the great wonders of the world – a wonder, it turns out, that we are just beginning to explore

"An inspired, informative look at one of the world's favorite places. One of the best ways to get to know the bay."
– Bob Schildgen, Managing Editor, Sierra magazine

"Dennis Anderson has captured much of the unknown beauty of San Francisco Bay. .This book underscores the necessity to preserve this treasure for future generations."
– Terrence Gosliner, Provost and Senior Curator, California Academy of Sciences
