About this book
Monterey, California conjures images of a coastal city rimmed by crystal clear waters and bolstered by tourism; yet these edenic views belie the community's often turbulent history, originating with the Native Americans who lived here for a millennium and Hispanic exploration and colonization. At each stage in the growth of this city, residents have successfully overcome the division of multiple rule, diverse nationalities, and fledgling identities to fashion a homeland in the western landscape of America that is deservingly proud of its character and history.

    Over the moon about Monterey...

    The area around Monterey Bay is perpetually popular with tourists and native Californians. Too few get past Cannery Row, the Aquarium and Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey to see the many other fine sights in the area. This Moon Handbook to Monterey & Carmel takes in the entire Monterey Peninsula, along with Monterey Bay as far north as the beach town of Santa Cruz, and the central coast as far south as the spectacular scenery of Big Sur.This handbook works systematically through the possibilities for visitors, beginning with Monterey and Carmel, and proceeding to Salinas,Santa Cruz, Big Sur, and Morro Bay, identifying museums, art galleries, beaches, parks, golf courses, restaurants, and places to stay. The concluding chapters address the unique geography of the area, along with some practicalities. The clear and easy to read text is very nicely supplemented by maps, diagrams, and photographs, both color and black and white.This Moon Handbook is pretty close... 5/5 D.S.Thurlow (California) - See all my reviews, November 14, 2013

    0 5/5 DRH2015 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Moon Monterey & Carmel: Including Santa Cruz & Big Sur (Moon Handbooks) (Paperback) Just returned from a 10 day trip to the Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur areas. Used this guide after also looking at similar offerings from Lonely Planet and Fodors. Thought that this was the best laid out and easiest to read. Overall I'd say it was pretty accurate. Obviously I can't expect a book to cover everything in the area, but it was reasonably thorough. Used Yelp, and Urban Spoon to fill in what it wasn't able to say about all the places to eat. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 25, 2013

    All Black Everything, and Just As I Wanted

    0 5/5 simone - See all my reviews This review is from: Birkenstock Sandals ''Monterey'' from Leather in Black with a regular insole (Apparel) At first, I was skeptical about purchasing Birkenstocks from a third-party seller, but being that Amazon is the seller I felt a bit better about it.The sandals came in nearly a week earlier than the expected delivery date to my surprise! When I opened the box, it was like someone at an official seller had handed it to me to try on. The sandals fit wonderfully, but it took a day or two to get used to the arches because they were still initially. Two months later, I wear these sandals regularly to slip on for a quick errand or to keep an outfit casual. I love my Birkenstocks, and I'm so happy that Amazon sold this nearly sold out pair. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 20, 2014

    Too bad I ordered these during winter

This review is from: Birkenstock Sandals ''Monterey'' from Leather in Black with a regular insole (Apparel) Too bad I ordered these during winter, going to have to wait to wear then outside the house.Overall, very cute and well made shoes. I never owned Birkenstocks, so I'm not sure how comfortable they're supposed to fit, the footbed didn't seem very soft. Again, will have to wait to break these in until summer weather. But they're very wide and a lot of room to wiggle around in, so that's nice.They took awhile to get here, but coming from Germany, that's expected. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 13, 2014

    IT'S NICE TO HAVE THIS BACK IN CIRCULATION FOR THOSE WHO MISSED IT BEFORE

    THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE 2013 4 CD EDITION OF "THE MONTEREY INTERNATIONAL POP FESTIVAL".AMAZON NEEDS TO DIFFERENTIATE between various editions of this set and place reviews under the correct edition. Reviews under the "Monterey" heading, as I write this, include older editions and the more recent 2 CD edition. Confusing! Hopefully Amazon will correct this oversight.This is quite a time for fans of live music from the late 60's/early 70's. Not only this Monterey set, but the multi-disc 1972 concert from the Grateful Dead in Veneta, Oregon. Plus--The Beatles' Vol. 2 of their BBC recordings is set for release soon. So much music, so little time.In a nutshell-if you don't already own one of the earlier editions of this 4 CD set--this is worth purchasing. The Salvo label has done a good overall job of presenting this music in a package which this historic event demands. And when you consider the prices for earlier editions--it's a no-brainer... 5/5 Stuart Jefferson (San Diego,Ca) - See all my reviews, September 12, 2013

    The best pop/rock music festival ever! The first one by the way!

    Bought this one through Amazon UK (it reaches you faster in Colombia, never understood why). This box set I had bought it 20 years ago in an enormous box that I finally lost to a girlfriend. Now this box has a proper size and a definitely better sound (not pitches, like this edition from 1993). The booklet is the same I bought that time and is gorgeous, with quotes from all the musicians that took part in that wonderful festival. Monterey was organized by John Phillips, the composer and leader of that terrific vocal foursome, "Mamas and the Papas". The festival did not have the disastrous conditions of Woodstock and its audience, back there in 1967, was a manageable 200,000 people. Woodstock, in my humble opinion, had a taste of marketing, excess and musically talking a worst set of performers (the best names in Woodstock are in Monterey, with some exceptions like Ten Years After, Sly&The Family Stone and Santana) and a worst sound in the recordings (blame in on the logistic chaos... 5/5 O.

I have been pondering purchasing some compilation for months and finally settled on this one due to good reviews. Good choice, if I say so myself. Good quality, especially given the technology available at that point in time. Nice little companion booklet which gives backgrounds and comments for each artist. And such outstanding performances. I wish the entire concert were available somewhere, plus video. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 9, 2014

    I was there, now you can be, too.

    Oh boy, Monterey Pop 1967. I was there and I loved every minute.2 years before Woodstock, over 200,000 young people descended upon a sleepy California fishing village for a 3 day celebration of music, peace, flowers, and love that heralded the beginning of "The Summer of Love".If you're goin'... wear some flowers in your hair.When I found this film, I knew I had to have it. And, I have not been disappointed. It's great. D.A. Pennebraker captured the reality of The First Annual International Monterey Pop Music Festival. (Unfortunately, it was also the last annual.) This documentary is raw, gritty, and filled with sights and sounds you won't find in any Hollywood portrayal of the "hippie movement". Every time I watch it, it takes me back to that wonderfully magic moment in time.You will enjoy the live performances of Janis Joplin (the weekend she signed a recording contract), The Jimi Hendrix Experience (their USA debut), Canned Heat,... 5/5 Stan Delk (Folsom, CA USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Monterey Pop:the Film [VHS] (VHS Tape) Oh boy, Monterey Pop 1967.

    This is what it is like when someone "steals" a show.

    0 4/5 gene blue (Chicago's North Side (Edgewater)) - See all my reviews This review is from: Monterey Pop:the Film [VHS] (VHS Tape) Janis Joplin blew this crowd away. It is spectacular to watch the reaction from Mama Cass as her mouth literally drops open and to hear the screams from this audience when Janis sings Ball and Chain. By the way this performance is on the 3-CD boxed set released in 1993 called Janis. And to be sure Janis wasn't the only reason to watch Monterey, a haunting set from Otis (a god) and a little heard of guitarist named Jimi Hendrix (a god). This was not my generation having only recently graduated high school, but why oh why can't concerts be this beautiful with so little aggression any more? 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 25, 2000

    "Monterey Pop": A REAL Hippie Music Experience

    "Monterey Pop" captures the real essense of a "Hippie" music festival preceding slick commercial "pseudo-Hippie" productionsWith often-jerky hand-held cameras, D. A. Pennepaker brings together color, clothing and culture of the Hippie period supported by its musical boundaries.Present are mainstream Simon & Garfunkel, R&B's Otis Redding, and exotic Hugh Masakela and Marion Makeba's African folk/jazz. Included are Rock's lesser knowns Scott McKenzie, Canned Heat, Country Joe and the Fish and Eric Burdon and the Animals. Featured are "big names": The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Mommas and Poppas, Janis Joplin & Big Brother, Jefferson Airplane. An exciting 18-minute Ravi Shankar raga melds two worlds as a fitting finale.An undercurrent of the film is how Pennepaker catches a "hippie" vs "mainstream" motif.

This review is from: New 5 Buttons Keyless Remote Key Shell for Ford Freestar Windstar Mercury Monterey (Electronics) The remote to my Windstar has broken off at the keyring. I thought I would have to buy a whole new remote then go through the hassle of reprogramming the new one. I don't know if that is a hassle or not because I have never done it and did not want to find out.I was merely researching prices for a new remote on Amazon when I found this. I did not hesitate to buy it.Now all I have to do is remove the old shell and replace it with this one. I'll probably replace the battery too while I'm at it because it seemed to be losing range. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 14, 2012

This review is from: New 5 Buttons Keyless Remote Key Shell for Ford Freestar Windstar Mercury Monterey (Electronics) Perfect fit. I used for my Ford Expedition EL Limited. I kept the buttons from my old remote because the on the Expedition there is a button for the rear hatch and one for the rear window. The one sold here is meant for a minivan with two side doors. If you memorized which side is which for your SUV it wouldn't matter but i know I would hit the wrong button 90% of the time. I just reused the old buttons from the remote I have and it fit just fine. Great find for a few bucks I replaced my broken remote instead of buying the whole remote from the dealership. I would recommend. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 23, 2014
