Sun Seekers Book


Sun Seekers: The Cure of California

by Lyra Kilston.

Southern California's ceaseless sunshine, healthful climate, and celebrated unorthodoxy has long entranced successive waves of radicals and iconoclasts. Examining several fascinating scenes from the Golden State's vast mythology, Lyra Kilston memorably entwines modernist architecture with natural medicine, an anti-civilizational stance with a return to nature, and such eclectic influences as vegetarianism, eugenics, nudism, and heliotherapy.
