Item description for Seaside (Images of America) by Carol Lynn McKibben...
Seaside's local history is unique and in many ways a microcosm of the ethnic mosaic that is California. Situated on the Monterey Bay, this working-class community of approximately 33,000 was incorporated in 1954; it was a typical military town, tied to Fort Ord, until the closure of the base in 1994. Seaside was home to a variety of ethnic groups, but after World War II, the city experienced a surge of immigration by African Americans associated with the military. Today the city is witness to another demographic shift symbolic of the state's changing face, as Mexican immigrants and their children now form the largest minority group in Seaside. Over the years, the city has continued to grow and attract new residents and visitors with its friendly community and striking coastal location.

Great for beach lovers everywhere Jan 6, 2009
I gave this book to my husband paired with the HB Lifeguard book for the perfect gift. He couldn't put them down, as he grew up bodysurfing HB & still goes out with his "crew" (ages 46-49)!!!! Still tearing it up! I also gave this book to a HB longboarder for Christmas - he appeared to love it also; I just wish now that I would've given him the lifeguard book also!
