Thomas Steinbeck

In Search of the Dark Watchers

In this lovely book, Thomas Steinbeck tells a tale that has been part of the Big Sur lore since the early days of the Esalen Indians.  His stories inspired Benjamin Brode to venture forth on his own personal journey to paint the mystery and majesty of this wild California coastline.

The result is a charming and beautifully crafted book made up of fifteen sketches, twenty-five oil paintings, and a glimpse into the remarkable friendship of two highly creative men.
