This article focuses on the book "The Sea Ranch," written by Donlyn Lyndon, Jim Alinder, Donald Canty, and Lawrence Halprin. The book's visual appeal is closer to World of Interiors than Sophisticated Traveler, realtor's fantasy, really. One can imagine as featured in the book serving as an imprimatur for the property as a whole and for the selected houses in particular, Lyndon's among them. The book epitomizes a Left Coast view of the country home. Living lightly with the land is Donlyn Lyndon's version of the mantra, picking up on the site's agrarian background.
