There's nothing like California to conjure up a dream. As a native Oregonian, no other western state has this effect on me. Not rustic Idaho nor wide open Montana nor desolate Nevada... California is something different. A Never, Neverland... a Fairy Tale. A separate reality unto itself.
No, rather it's about the stunning natural beauty of Northern California. A beauty so rich it hits you both emotionally and intellectually.
That's not always easy for human-made art to accomplish. As we plunge into the Redwoods, we look at two American classics: one emotional Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter, the other intellectual, Arthur Miller's The Crucible.
