A lavishly illustrated insider's look at 80 years of music and culture in Laurel Canyon. Hardcover book with 368 pages, including index.

Laurel Canyon is a zip code with its own play list: to name just a few, Sonny & Cher, The Doors, The Turtles, Canned Heat, Monkees, Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne; Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; Eagles, and Carole King all cultivated their immortal sounds in this L.A.-based musical fraternity.

Written by a long-time L.A. resident who knows them all, Canyon of Dreams traces the history of the community and its enduring legacy. Taking a deeply personal approach, it uses a multiple-voice narration based on exclusive interviews with the area's musical elite. Because of their close and long-time connection with Kubernik, some of these stars are speaking openly for the first time.

Photos and mentions of Joni are throughout the book. In Chapter 13, Country Comforts under the title, Chatelaine of the Canyon are eight pages dedicated to Joni. Ola Hudson shares her memories of time spent with her. In chapter 17 Cultural Creatives, under the title, Elegant People, Joni's albums from BLUE to MINGUS are noted.

In other pages, Graham Nash reflects on life with Joni and describes writing the song Our House. Slash, a child of the Canyon, reveals Joni was a close family friend. Zoe Scott recalls her conversation with Joni upon meeting her in 2008. And more!
