Praise for
"Sacred Sonoma":

"What a wonderful job you have done on Sonoma County. Thanks so much for caring about this grand piece of the world." --Winifred Medin

Sacred Sonoma

Beth Winegarner San Francisco Bay Area author Beth Winegarner became the first to apply British and European concepts of earth energy and sacred alignments to the Sonoma County landscape when she began researching the region's historic and haunted sites in 1995. She then became the first to publish that research when she took "Sacred Sonoma" to the Web in 2000.

Since then, her work has attracted interest and praise from residents hoping to find out more about the special place where they live, as well as from travelers looking for places to visit and expatriates longing for a piece of home.

Today Winegarner presents the long-awaited print version of "Sacred Sonoma," completely revised and updated with new sites. This volume also includes all new photographs and a new introduction from the author, along with the original maps by illustrator Matt Berger.

Now, "Sacred Sonoma" is something locals and travelers can carry with them as they visit the unusual sites and alignments it describes. Take it with you and explore the beauty, history and mystery of Sonoma County.
