In 2004, Lloyd Kahn discovered a group of unique carpenters along the Pacific Coast of North America. Over a two-year period, he made four trips north from his home in the San Francisco Bay Area, up the coast, shooting the photos that appear in this book. To preserve homeowners' privacy, specific locations are not given, but suffice to say this book focuses on the Pacific Coast north from San Francisco up to and around Vancouver Island, British Columbia, latitudes 37 to 49 degrees. There's been a vortex of creative carpentry energy in this part of the world over the last 30 years. Many of the builders shown here got started in the countercultural era of the '60s and '70s, and their work has never been shown in books or magazine articles.

Excerpt from Master Hands in the Affairs of the Pacific Coast: Historical, Biographical and Descriptive; A Resume of the Builders of Our Material Progress This volume is designed mainly to furnish information concerning the facilities and of this Coast, that the most comprehensive spirit of enterprise may be awakened at home, and increased patronage and favor come from abroad. While it will deal with the past in a brief measure, it has chiefly to do with the future, by directing in the present, the attention of skill and capital to our vast resources, and encouraging those powerful levers of industrial progression to utilize more thoroughly the facts which demonstrate the superiority of this section as a manufacturing and commercial centre. It is not claimed that this work is perfect - the difliculties in obtaining essential information have made that much desired end an impossibility - yet the utmost care has been exercised in collecting and presenting the matter to make it not only acceptable to the general reader, but in the highest degree valuable to the manufacturer.

Although the period of active life of San Francisco has been a short one, as historical periods go, it has been crowded with incident. Enough of the latter could be found to present a vivid picture of the career of the metropolis of the Pacific coast, but in this work something more has been attempted than a mere recital of occurrences. It has been the purpose of the author to trace the causes of the growth of the City, and to describe the manifold activities of its citizens. This is volume two out of two of one of the most thrilling and detailed histories of San Francisco.
