Two Little Girls with Sausage Curls ‘Discover the Lost Coast’

Share Article

New book tells of one family’s exciting trips to a wilderness known for its raw beauty.

In 1924, the McArthurs discovered Shelter Cove on the Lost Coast of Humboldt County, CA. For the next thirty-eight years, their children and grandchildren spent their summers there, meeting each day with expectations of yet another adventure. Readers are invited to embark on a journey to this paradise in author V. Catania-Robertson’s Discover the Lost Coast, an account of wilderness and adventure as told by two little girls with sausage curls.

Every summer, they never get disappointed. They wake up each morning to the silence made by a moist fog upon the shores of the coast; by noon, they observe the sea birds at work flying above the many fishermen; and in the afternoon, they delight in watching seals, whales, and an occasional walrus or sea otter frolicking not far from the shore. When they go hiking or camping inland, they encounter badgers, bears, deer, and many kinds of birds. What adventures await them this vacation? Exciting encounters await readers in Discover the Lost Coast.

Packed with photographs and illustrations, Discover the Lost Coast entices readers to take a trip to this part of California and enjoy what the two little girls have experienced during their summer vacations. It is an invitation to tap one’s adventurous self— to savor and appreciate the raw beauty of nature.

Discover the Lost Coast will be featured at this year’s California Library Association Book Exhibit in Sacramento, CA on November 12-15, 2010. For more information, log on to
