A world unto itself, California encompasses an environment as rich and diverse as any on earth. Deserts, mountain ranges, wetlands, woodlands and 1,100 miles of coastline provide habitats for over 580 bird species, 200 mammals, 130 reptiles and amphibians, 60 freshwater fishes and 5,000 native plant species, many found only in California. This beautifully illustrated field guide highlights over 370 common and unique plants and animals and 85 of the state's outstanding natural attractions. It is an indispensable single reference for amateur naturalists, students and tourists alike.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The Nature of California offers an agreeable overview of animals and plants casual hikers and campers are likely to encounter ... a useful book to keep with the picnic supplies or camping gear."
- LA Times
"With so many detailed guides in print, it would be tempting to overlook this book, yet it fills a valuable niche. Small and light, [it features] lovely color illustrations of several hundred species of plants, mammals, reptiles, fish and birds."
- San Francisco Chronicle
"A useful and informative guide ... this is a user-friendly book with an excellent introduction."
- Books of the Southwest Review
