The Inlandia Institute is responding to popular demand with this encore presentation by Luis Fuerte, award winning cameraman and author of Louie, Take a Look at This!: My Time with Huell Howser (Prospect Park Books, 2017). Based on his years working with Huell Howser on California’s Gold, Fuerte’s book embraces the dissimilarities between Fuerte’s and Howser’s personalities and backgrounds. Fuerte attributes the pair’s onscreen chemistry to this diversity, attributing the strength behind their match to the chemistry that arose from it.

As well as the stories of everyday people and those behind the scenes of much that is magic in California, Fuerte makes insightful observations about Huell. “I came to realize that he was genuinely and deeply interested in the people he interviewed and their personal stories. He was truly fascinated with his discoveries, from the stupendous to the downright ordinary. They all mattered to him.”
