Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Los Angeles and#150; the ultimate icon of urban sprawl and#150; is the last place on earth youand#8217;ll find miles of unspoiled open land and a wide range of wild creatures. Or is it? While the media portray L.A. as a showplace of cars, not wildlife, of highrises and strip malls, not sylvan meadows and canyons, in reality there are incredible natural treasures to be found within a mere 90-minute drive from downtown L.A.

Author James Lawrenceand#8217;s intimate knowledge and love of the city where he grew up inform his engaging text, which is complemented by a gallery of nearly 150 full-color images by some of the Westand#8217;s leading nature photographers.

Separate chapters explore the magnificent Santa Monica Mountains; the and#147;Rim of the Valley,and#8221; including the lush Simi Hills; Griffith Park and other and#147;wild in the cityand#8221; retreats; the San Gabriel Range, including Antelope Valley and the western fringe of the Mojave; and the dramatic Santa Anas, including Orange Countyand#8217;s incomparable golden coast

This much is certain: no one who delves into this beautiful and surprising book will ever look at the City of Angels in quite the same way again.

Synopsis:

Evocative text and 133 stunning color photographs reveal the incredible natural treasures to be found in wild preserves, parks, and wilderness areas throughout the Greater Los Angeles area.
