About the Author

Grant Collier has been working as a photographer and writer since 1996 and is the author of 15 books. Grant spent many months photographing in California to capture the images for this book. He also traveled to the crystal-clear waters of Aitutaki lagoon to shoot the over/under water scenes. If he couldn’t get the image he needed, Grant used a tablet to draw parts of the landscape, including trees, light beams, and a kelp forest. Stephanie Lowman has been sketching and painting for over thirty years. Bringing to life past and present scenes from California was one of her most challenging projects. Stephanie studied fossils of prehistoric creatures and compared them to fossils of living animals to learn how they might have looked. She then spent countless hours drawing all of the animals and people line-by-line.
