Living Among Giants: Botanical Treasures of a Sequoia Grove Lowest new price: $8.68
Lowest used price: $6.62
List price: $12.99

When most people walk among giant sequoias, they look up, marveling at the sturdy branches and canopy sprawling hundreds of feet overhead. As a naturalist and artist, however, Shirley Spencer likes to look for the less obvious beauty in her surroundings. And in a sequoia grove, that means bringing her curiosity and keen powers of observation to the diverse plant life that thrives among these famous Californian trees.

In this appreciation of flora commonly found in a sequoia grove, she introduces us to species such as the delicate California azalea and the showy mountain dogwood, the hardy whiteleaf manzanita and the strikingly crimson snow plant. Each two-page spread features an eye-catching watercolor portrait complemented by detailed descriptions. This curated collection of trees, shrubs, flowers, and spore-bearing plants, makes a welcome keepsake or companion for a stroll among the giants and will have readers spotting botanical treasures at every turn.

Author: William C. Tweed

In this provocative walking meditation, writer and former park ranger William Tweed takes us to California’s spectacular High Sierra to discover a new vision for our national parks as they approach their 100th anniversary. Tweed, who worked among the Sierra Nevada’s big peaks and big trees for more than thirty years, has now hiked more than 200 miles along California’s John Muir Trail in a personal search for answers: How do we address the climate change we are seeing even now―in melting glaciers in Glacier National Park, changing rainy seasons on Mt Rainer, and more fire in the West’s iconic parks. Should we intervene where we can to preserve biodiversity? Should the parks merely become ecosystem museums that exhibit famous landscapes and species? Asking how we can make these magnificent parks relevant for the next generation, Tweed, through his journey, ultimately shows why we must do just that.
