A Natural HistoryBook - 2005
The Rockies are familiar to everyone in North America, yet few appreciate the true diversity of these mountains. This book covers the Rockies from sagebrush flats to icy tundra, and explores the range's geological formation; its role in shaping the West; the plants and animals that form its many ecosystems; and the complex relationship between humans and the Rockies. Written in a lively, engaging style, the book features spectacular color photographs, elegant line drawings, and interesting sidebars.
