The Death and Life of Monterey Bay, A Story of Revival

Creator: Stephen R Palumbi, Carolyn Sotka | Nature - 2011-01-26

The shores of Monterey Bay revived because of human passion—passion that enlivens every page of this hopeful book.

Publisher: Island Press

About this book
Anyone who has ever stood on the shores of Monterey Bay, watching the rolling ocean waves and frolicking otters, knows it is a unique place. But even residents on this idyllic California coast may not realize its full history. Monterey began as a natural paradise, but became the poster child for industrial devastation in John Steinbeck’s Cannery Row,and is now one of the most celebrated shorelines in the world.   It is a remarkable story of life, death, and revival—told here for the first time in all its stunning color and bleak grays. The Death and Life of Monterey Bay begins in the eighteenth century when Spanish and French explorers encountered a rocky shoreline brimming with life—raucous sea birds, abundant sea otters, barking sea lions, halibut the size of wagon wheels,waters thick with whales. A century and a half later, many of the sea creatures had disappeared, replaced by sardine canneries that sickened residents with their stench but kept the money flowing. When the fish ran out and the climate turned,the factories emptied and the community crumbled. But today,both Monterey’s economy and wildlife are resplendent. How did it happen?   The answer is deceptively simple: through the extraordinary acts of ordinary people. The Death and Life of Monterey Bay is the biography of a place, but also of the residents who reclaimed it. Monterey is thriving because of an eccentric mayor who wasn’t afraid to use pistols, axes, or the force of law to protect her coasts. It is because of fishermen who love their livelihood, scientists who are fascinated by the sea’s mysteries, and philanthropists and community leaders willing to invest in a world-class aquarium. The shores of Monterey Bay revived because of human passion—passion that enlivens every page of this hopeful book.

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.

Monterey's Waterfront

Creator: Tim Thomas, Dennis Copeland | History - 2006

On Monterey's waterfront the words sardine, salmon, mackerel, pompano, albacore, abalone, flounder, and squid were music to the ears of fishermen.

Publisher: Arcadia Publishing

About this book
On Monterey's waterfront the words sardine, salmon, mackerel, pompano, albacore, abalone, flounder, and squid were music to the ears of fishermen. With its deep underwater canyon, Monterey Bay hosted a sealife jamboree long before the native Rumsien set out in small tule boats to harvest its bounty. It has sounded a siren call to fishermen and biologists ever since. Chinese fishermen pioneered modern commercial fishing in the 1850s, clustering in villages along Monterey's rugged coast. The cry "Baleia!" sounded through town, summoning Portuguese whalers to their longboats. Japanese divers in primitive hard-hat gear brought a sea snail called abalone to national attention, while Sicilians earned Monterey the title "sardine capital of the world." The railroad opened the way for visitors to discover this natural coastal paradise, now a tourist mecca.

    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.

    Think first if you have earlier editions

    5/5 Dee Zee (Washington, DC Metro) - See all my reviews This review is from: Monterey Pop - Various (Audio CD) Great 4 CD set, no doubt. However the original 1992 edition sounds great listening to it today. If you don't have this set, buy it, it's a great rock snapshot of 1967.
