California's 1,100 miles of majestic coastline holds countless of stories of humans interacting with the sea. In his new book, "The Golden Shore: California's Love Affair with the Sea," David Helvarg traces a geographic, ecological and literary journey along California's coastline. He joins us to discuss how early settlers, the military, surfers and others have transformed -- and been changed by -- the Pacific shoreline.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • David Helvarg, author of "The Golden Shore: California's Love Affair with the Sea" and executive director of Blue Frontier Campaign
