Description
The concept of bohemia, or a place of unconventional lifestyles, swept through Berkeley, California, at the turn of the 20th century. It was a city of scholars and visionaries and a crossroads of cultures, providing fertile ground for individuality, eccentricity, and creative expression and supporting such freethinkers as Florence Boynton, who introduced natural living; John Muir, who led the environmental movement; and Charles Keeler, who founded the First Berkeley Cosmic Society. Illustrated throughout with purple-toned archival photos, this book provides glimpses into the lives of the artists, writers, and philosophers who had a profound influence on what the city has become today, including novelist Jack London, photographers Ansel Adams and Dorothea Lange, architect Bernard Maybeck, and the writer and artist team Charles and Louise Keeler.
