This ABC book takes the reader on a walking journey through Huntington Beach, California. Also known as Surf City, USA, it is home to the magnificent Huntington Beach Pier. The city has a small-town flavor, but it draws visitors from all over the world who are interested in the legends and lore of this shangri la. The old town area is the focus of this book, and the author/photographer went in search of shadows in some of the city's most famous spots. She uses dictionary definitions as a theme to tie her photographs together.
