The agency?s unwavering focus and sophisticated methods have allowed it to preserve 100,000 acres of public parklands in 65 parks throughout San Francisco Bay Area?s Alameda and Contra Costa counties (the East Bay). The book explores the politically charged annexation of new territory in 1964, board members whose controversial tactics nearly brought the agency to its knees, the clashes of "pure" open-space advocates with those favoring increased public access to parks, and many more pivotal moments. Set against the coming of age of the environmental movement, the book reveals how these extraordinary events unfolded, through the eyes and words of people behind the scenes. Living Landscape informs and surprises readers interested in the environment, California history, politics, law, or simply a good story.Laura McCreery is a writer and oral historian specializing in California politics and government. Her news, feature, travel, and opinion articles have appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, the East Bay Monthly, and the in-flight magazine Reno Air Approach, where she was a contributing writer, as well as in such journals as California Legal History, Oregon Historical Quarterly, and California Historian.
