The Forests of California
Obi Kaufmann, who previously blew readers away with The California Field Atlas and The State of Water: Understanding California’s Most Precious Resource, is back with an other masterful piece of work in Forests of California: A California Field Atlas. The book is ideal for the would-be naturalist, weighty but not so large that it can’t be easily slipped in a backpack or large pocket and taken on a trip around the forests of California.
The work that has gone into this book is simply astonishing; every page is a treasure trove of information and beauty. The book is divided into types of trees and regions throughout California, along with many, many illustrations of the trees and places, which have been created with love and care. The book is perfect for anyone on a camping trip looking for some fun and engrossing reading, or for someone needing a thorough guide to Californian trees in order to be able to find an exact species quickly and efficiently.
Forests of California is the first book in a planned trilogy, and it will be followed by The Coasts of California and The Deserts of California. Even if you’re stuck at home right now due to the pandemic, this book is still an absolute delight to read.
