Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"In this single, portable volume there is enough information to satisfy the most voracious naturalist, whether Sierra resident or visitor, while also providing a wealth of useful illustrations (maps, line drawings, color photos) to assist in field identification. This is the book that can easily go backpacking with the plant enthusiast, birder, or butterfly collector."—Bruce Pavlik, Series Editor, California Natural History Guide Series and author of Oaks of California

"Storer and Usinger’s Sierra Nevada Natural History is the only book that covers so many aspects of this region's natural history in a compact form. I am thrilled to see that David Lukas has made the careful revisions necessary to update this classic book and make it even more useful and comprehensive. I plan to take it on every hike."—Edward C. Beedy, author of Discovering Sierra Birds

Bought this book for some friends, and they've gotten quite a bit of use out of it for identifying trees and wildlife in the numerous parks in the Sierra Nevada near where they live. Sounds like a winner to me.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book, on its own, has quite a bit of history. The short entries have a lot of character and information. They definitely align better with the localities of the Sierra Nevada better than more general books of flora and fauna. There are more detailed books about wildflowers in the area. However, the range of coverage is pretty amazing. It definitely has answered quite a few questions that, even after 20+ years of visiting the same area, weren't exactly clear.

A nice resource for anyone written in an entertaining and engaging way.
