According to amazon.com, Huell Howser, the exuberant, hugely popular host of California’s Gold and other public-television shows, was always exclaiming to the camera in his Southern drawl, “Louie, take a look at this!” Three years after Howser’s death in 2013, Louie—aka Luis Fuerte, a five-time Emmy-winning cameraman—shared the stories of their adventures exploring California, making great television, and showcasing Howser’s infectious love for the Golden State.

During their twelve years together, Howser and Fuerte developed not just a great working relationship, but a true friendship. Genuinely interested in the people he interviewed and fascinated by the history of his adopted state, Howser led the way from the Mother Lode to the Inland Empire, and from Haight Street to Sunset Boulevard, as the duo uncovered everything that makes California special. Fuerte recounts some of their greatest discoveries, reveals the secrets of their success, and pays tribute to the man who struck gold wherever he looked.

Fuerte was born in San Bernardino and grew up in Colton. He graduated from Colton High School and served in the U.S Navy. He attended Valley College where he studied Telecommunications Engineering. Luis Fuerte has worked in all aspects of television and worked as a Cameraman for 40 years. Fuerte is winner of 5 Emmys, received an international monitor award, and the Golden mic for editing. He has received awards from the State of California and County of San Bernardino for speaking and helping young people achieve, and awards from press Photographers Association of Greater Los Angeles. He was honored as Latino of the Year in 2008, inducted into two Halls of Fame, and received the “Salt of the Earth” award in 2001.
