"I've been to L.A. twice in my life and have gone through this book as if Tolkien wrote it as a companion to "The Hobbit"; it's captivating. Seriously." - Nick LeFort, Gear Institute
The founder of website Modern Hiker and author of Day Hiking: Los Angeles, (Schreiner) may have been raised in Connecticut and educated in Boston, but he can pinpoint the region's seasonal shifts better than some California lifers could. He speaks of the sage scrub fragrance that fills the foothills during winter, the wildflowers that bloom in spring and the clouds that settle over mountaintops as a prelude to gruesome summers. He also knows a secret of summer nature that's kept in the higher altitudes of the San Gabriel Mountains: shade-providing pine trees and hills that aren't "ugly brown." - L.A. Weekly
