Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bargain Books are non-returnable.

The Pacific Coast, with its hundreds of miles of unspoiled forests, cliffs, fields, and beaches from Mexico to British Columbia, attracts nature lovers from around the world. Naturalist Susan Tweit pays a very special homage to this diverse region in this handsome volume. Forty informative, evocative essays, each illustrated with a color drawing, capture the Coast's vibrant plant and animal life, from sea otters and monarch butterflies to giant bladder kelp and gray whales. Her subjects, both on and off-shore, also include octopus, sturgeon, abalone, redwoods, cobra lilies, and the eccentric sand dollar. The author begins with field notes and then offers delightful observations and commentary. Whether you are sitting in the sand or reading in your favorite armchair, this book is an inspiring companion to the natural world.

Book News Annotation:

A naturalist presents 39 profiles, based on personal and scientific observations, focusing on the wildlife of the Pacific Coast, from the regal Pacific madrone and the endangered marbled murrelet to the slimy moon jellyfish and banana slug. Lovely watercolor illustrations.
