Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

An artist and naturalist, Cunningham is intimately familiar with the plants, wildlife, and landscapes of California. For this book, however, she uses words and paintings to show California not as it is, but as it was centuries ago. Cunningham's art is not pulled out of thin air, however; it is based on extensive studies of historical accounts, paleontology, and archaeology, as well as her own visits to California's remaining near-pristine landscapes. The resulting book not only contains beautiful paintings of past landscapes and wildlife, but explains how human actions and climate change have altered those past environments, and how people can learn to live in better balance with California's present-day environment.
