We could see black bear and wild turkey from the back porch. We could pick blueberries and collect mushrooms. We could drink right out of the streams and walk through the hills all day without seeing another person.Sometimes we would wander off the familiar trails and plunge into the deepest, tangliest art of the thicket, just to see what was there. Sometimes we would sit quietly on the banks of a stream or at the edge of a meadow, waiting with watchful eyes. And sometimes, when we were very lucky, we would get a glimpse of the natural world that re...

The California Field Atlas
“[A] gorgeously illustrated compendium.”―SunsetThis lavishly illustrated atlas takes readers off the beaten path and outside normal conceptions of California, revealing its myriad ecologies, topographies, and histories in exquisite maps and trail paintings. Based on decades of exploring the backcountry of the Golden State, artist-adventurer Obi Kaufmann blends science and art to illuminate the multifaceted array of living, connected systems like no book has done before. Kaufmann depicts layer after layer of the natural world, delighting in the grand scale and details alike. The effect is staggeringly beautiful: presented alongside California divvied into its fifty-eight counties, for example, we consider California made up of dancing tectonic plates, of watersheds, of wildflower gardens. Maps are enhanced by spirited illustrations of wildlife, keys that explain natural phenomena, and a clear-sighted but reverential text. Full of character and color, a bit larger than life, The California Field Atlas is the ultimate road trip companion and love letter to a place.
