EAT, DRINK & BE HAIRY: the travels & travails of Yosemite's bears & their peculiar pals. by Phil Frank. Every year four urbanized black bears make a summer-long visit to Yosemite from San Francisco in Phil Frank's cartoon strip 'Farley,' which appears daily in the San Francisco Chronicle. Known as Bruinhilda, Alphonse, Franklin, and Floyd, the ursine quartet members wreak devious havoc in Yosemite Valley and have become a thorn in the side of the park rangers. Other Yosemite-related strips feature Velma Melmac (an RV-loving camper from Manteca who abhors dirt), her assistant in a campground cleaning business Lisa Ann, Velma's love interest Rhett, seasonal ranger Farley, Charbeaver (an employee at the Fog City Dumpster), and even former San Francisco mayor Willie Brown. This collection of nearly 300 hilarious cartoon strips originally appearing between 1999 and 2004 is the second 'Farley' book to be published by the Yosemite Conservancy. The first, Fur and Loafing in Yosemite, has proven to be a classic favorite of park visitors and Yosemite lovers. The book includes a cast of characters, a map of the annual migration route of Ursus corruptus, a wonderful schematic drawing of Velma's Ark-A-Lounger motor home, and an inside view of the bears in camp. 168 pages; 12 inches x 9 inches; illustrated in black and white; paperback; copyright 2006, Yosemite Conservancy.

COLORADO GOLD: From the Pike's Peak Rush to the present. Stephen M. Voynick. "In Colorado Gold, Stephen Voynick has created a masterpiece intermingling gold rushes, booms, and busts, with geology and mining technologies, legends, and lore." —True West.
The early miners who panned for gold in 1858 on the banks of Cherry Creek, where Denver now stands, could not have known how profoundly that precious metal would soon affect the emerging state of Colorado. Their boom soon turned to bust. But subsequent discoveries at Cripple Creek and other places yielded more than enough "color" to coat the dome on Colorado's capitol.
Colorado Gold is the story of gold--concealed within the Rockies for ages, affecting the destinies of people and landscapes today. It is a historical account that assesses our enduring, romantic drive to extract this unusually malleable and heavy metal from the earth. Topics include both historic and modern booms and busts, gold's intrinsic value, mining technologies past and present, legends and lore, and a look at tomorrow's gold. 224 6x9.

THE PONY EXPRESS: a photographic history. by Bill Moeller. Fast horses, intrepid young riders, and miles of untamed land–these are the elements of one of American history’s most enduring stories: the Pony Express. During its brief existence, the Pony Express captured the American imagination, and nearly a century and a half later, it still does. In this photographic retelling of the legendary mail service’s rise and fall, husband-and-wife authors Bill and Jan Moeller combine exhaustive historical research with exquisite camera work to create a stunning, full-color pictorial history. Following the 2,000-mile Pony Express Trail from Independence, Missouri, to Sacramento, California, the Moellers photographed sites, remnants, and reconstructions of Pony Express stations, surrounding landscapes, and traces of the trail itself. In the accompanying text, the authors provide a brief history of this unique, eighteen-month business venture, along with dramatic highlights, such as “Pony Bob” Haslam’s astounding 380-mile ride, “Uncle Nick” Wilson’s survival of an arrow in his skull, and “Wild Bill” Hickok’s gunfight with David McCanles at Rock Creek Station in Nebraska. 224 pages.

GEOLOGY UNDERFOOT IN CENTRAL NEVADA. by Richard L. Orndorff, Robert W. Wieder,  & Harry F. Filkorn. "This invaluable guide enthusiastically and appealingly describes two dozen geological attractions in Nevada near U.S. Highway 50. . . . Interpretation of the landscape fills each chapter, and the authors present the evidence and reveal the reasoning process that led them to their scientific conclusions." —Science Books & Films: Your Guide to Science Resources for All Ages, American Association for the Advancement of Science. Most people think of Nevada as a land of casinos and drive-in wedding chapels punctuating vast expanses of desolate desert. But at the heart of the Basin and Range province, the Silver State is also a geologist's playground, with great topographic relief exposing spectacular geology. Cutting a wide swath that straddles U.S. 50, Geology Underfoot in Central Nevada explores 21 diverse walking and driving tours from Lake Tahoe and Reno east to Great Basin National Park. In Ichthyosaur State Park, examine fossil remains of giant sea lizards as you imagine the ocean that covered Nevada more than 200 million years ago. In Great Basin National Park, walk where glaciers sculpted the slopes of 13,063-foot Wheeler Peak, the second highest mountain in Nevada, and go underground in Lehman Caves to marvel at dripstone features called speleothems. South of Carson City, place your hand on an active earthquake fault that continues to lift the Carson Range--evidence that, at least geologically, Nevada is still a work in progress.

MYSTERY TRACKS IN THE SNOW. by Hap Gilliland. Recognize animal tracks from snow patterns--mammals, birds, reptiles. Gives clues so we can decipher the silent language of animal tracks. Illustrations throughout of the tracks and the animals that left them. "On your next walk near Flattop or in Kincaid Park, take along a copy of Hap Gilliland's Mystery Tracks in the Snow. Hap Gilliland is an author, educator, and outdoorsman best known for his books dealing with Native Americans. As the dates of some of his drawings reveal, Gilliland has been collecting material for this book since he was 13--over 50 years. He has tracked everything from coyote to black bear, from porcupine and mule deer to ermine, buffalo and caribou. His wolverine track was drawn at Lake Iliamna, his brown bear at Chignik Lake, his whitetail deer in central Montana. In addition to life-size tracts, Gilliland includes photos of skulls and drawings of the animals themselves. He explains how to make casts of tracts in the snow, and includes a few 'mysteries.' This is a useful book for the backpacker or the curious hiking youngster who's always asking, 'What's that?'

GEOLOGY UNDERFOOT IN DEATH VALLEY AND OWENS VALLEY. by Robert Sharp & Allen Glazner. "Robert Sharp and Allen Glazner are to geology what Carl Sagan was to astronomy." —Eclectic Book Reviews. Eastern California boasts the greatest dryland relief in the contiguous United States, between 14,499-foot Mount Whitney in the Sierra Nevada and minus-282-foot Badwater Basin in Death Valley. That relief offers a rich variety of environments--and spectacular geology. Through driving and walking tours, Geology Underfoot in Death Valley and Owens Valley provides an on-the-ground look at the processes sculpting the terrain in this land of extremes.
Illustrated with photographs, maps, and diagrams, each geological vignette weaves the tale of a particular scene, feature, or relationship in the landscape. Some sketches ponder questions that have puzzled geologists: what formed the turtlebacks in the Black Mountains and how do stones mysteriously slide on desolate Racetrack Playa? Others spotlight the role of volcanoes and earthquakes as landscape artists: the superb lava columns of Devil's Postpile, the massive steam explosion at Ubehebe Crater, and fault scarps that shape a golf course's greens. Still others focus on less obvious but equally powerful geologic processes: boulders shattered by salt crystals and rocks blasted by windblown sand. Together, these snapshots introduce readers to eastern California's rich, dynamic geology. 329 pages.

THE BOOK OF FIRE.  William Cottrell, Jr. Beginning at the molecular level, The Book of Fire introduces nonscientists to the anatomy of heat, ignition, and flame—progressing from how a twig catches fire to how an entire forest burns. To help readers understand the science of fire, William Cottrell illustrates combustion events that most people are familiar with: a flickering candle, a smoldering campfire, a slowly cooking marshmallow. He uses these illustrations to introduce readers to wildland fire behavior, fire types, and fuel levels—indispensable information for firefighters and fire managers, as well as homeowners who live in the wildland-urban interface. The Book of Fire is also a good resource for city dwellers who want to know the contents of smoky air or understand what really happened when the local newspaper says a wildfire "made a run." A glossary contains the most up-to-date terminology used by firefighters and fire managers. 80 pages.

FINDING FAULT IN CALIFORNIA: An Earthquake Tourist's Guide. by Susan Elizabeth Hough. California has plenty of faults—seismic faults that is. They shear the Golden State into ribbons and have largely crafted California's geologically diverse and dynamic landscape. With humor and ease, Finding Fault in California leads the earthquake curious to the state's most accessible, active, and earth-shaping faults and tells the stories behind the major temblors that have shaken the region.
The book begins with a discussion about what faults are and how to recognize them. The geologic tours follow, exploring the seismic hazards of the Los Angeles Basin, the San Francisco Bay Area, central California, the Mojave Desert, a neighborhood that is slowly being wrenched in two by the creeping Calaveras fault, and a now-landscaped surface rupture from the 1971 San Fernando quake in a McDonald's parking lot—giving new meaning to an order for burgers and shakes. Photos, maps, and diagrams, most with precise GPS coordinates, illustrate the conversational text. Entertaining sidebars highlight the often ingenious methods of modern fault-finding researchers.  368 pages, 6 x9.

STORIES OF YOUNG PIONEERS: in their own words. Violet T. Kimball. This lengthy, thorough book relies on diaries and memoirs to bring to life the experience of traveling westward in the mid-nineteenth century." —Booklist. Most people know about the hardships and dangers the pioneers encountered on the Emigrant Trail in the mid-nineteenth century. What they may not consider, however, is the strength and courage of pioneer children in the face of these difficulties.

Readers ages twelve to sixteen will discover in these pages a window into the lives of emigrant children on the trail. The book is organized by topic--including romance, animals, fun, and recreation, as well as danger, disease, and death--and peppered with detailed profiles of individual youngsters.

THE BACKYARD HORSEMAN. Ron Rude. Whether you already have a horse or are thinking of buying one, you’ll find plenty of practical advice and valuable information in The Backyard Horseman, a down-to-earth guide to raising and caring for horses on a small scale and a limited budget. Emphasizing ethics and economy, longtime backyard horseman Ron Rude covers topics such as buying, feeding, and training, as well as health, gear, facilities, pasture management, shows and events, and decisions owners face when horses grow old. The Backyard Horseman dispels romantic myths about owning horses and replaces them with something far more valuable: a philosophy of ownership that, with planning, study, and practice, leads to a rewarding relationship and a solid foundation of true horsemanship. 192 pages, 8 1/2 x 11.

CHRISTMAS IN THE OLD WEST: a historical scrapbook. by Sam Travers. Far away from the tinsel, eggnog, and colorfully wrapped packages of civilized life in the East, explorers, mountain men, and pioneers usually celebrated Christmas with homemade gifts and humble fare. As the West became settled, affluent westerners could order by mail virtually all the trimmings of Christmas, from toy trains to canned oysters. Christmas in the Old West: A Historical Scrapbook, a mosaic of stories, reminiscences, recipes, photographs, newspaper clippings, magazine advertisements, and more, brings alive the spirit of Christmas on the American frontier.
Through diary quotes, letters, and stories we can feel the icy December wind as a lone trapper sips rum by his campfire, hear the gruff caroling of soldiers at their remote outpost, see candlelight flicker as a pioneer mother pieces together a rag doll for her little girl, and smell the venison roasting over an open hearth. Newspaper clippings announce town celebrations where “a glorious time is assured.” From the Corps of Discovery’s hungry, lonely Christmas at Fort Clatsop to mining-camp turkey shoots to ranchers’ Christmas dances, Sam Travers show us the joys and challenges of “keeping Christmas” in a rough frontier setting. Color illustrations keep the mood merry. 252 pages. Inventory =  1.

Readers can do the same with Middle Mountain Forests, Sub-Alpine Forest, Middle Mountain Meadows, Alpine Fell Fields or Meadows, Rocky Areas and Cliffs, Pinyon-Juniper Woodland, Chaparral and Sagebrush Areas, and Freshwater Areas. 126 of the region's common plants and 263 of its mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fish are plainly described and carefully illustrated. Sierra Nevadan is a reliable, portable, 'user-friendly' guide that should be every hiker, camper, and wildlife watcher's constant out-of-doors companion." (The Midwest Book Review, Sept. 1996)

JOHN MUIR, IN HIS OWN WORDS--a book of quotations. Compiled and Edited by Peter Browning. "Earth has no sorrow that earth cannot heal." The best of John Muir—332 quotations, the distillation of his thought, the essence of his beliefs. Muir was the foremost conservationist of his time—nature writer, social critic, realist, a romantic, a visionary. "A long-needed collection that features an excellent subject index. Painstaking bibliographic references make this an invaluable addition to one's Muir library." (Yosemite Conservancy.) No single quotation can possibly serve to illuminate his philosophy, but if asked for a succinct statement of his beliefs, Muir might have said: "In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks", "How narrow we selfish, conceited creatures are in our sympathies! How blind to the rights of all the rest of creation!"
, "The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness", "The battle we have fought, and are still fighting . . . is a part of the eternal conflict between right and wrong, and we cannot expect to see the end of it", "Sheep are driven into Hetch Hetchy every spring, about the same time that a nearly equal number of tourists are driven into Yosemite; another coincident which is remarkably suggestive."

ON THE ROAD TO YELLOWSTONE: the Yellowstone Trail and American Highways 1900-1930. by Harold A. Meeks. Before 1900 long distance travel in America and elsewhere was strictly a railroad phenomenon, but with improvements in the internal combustion engine, automobile travel gradually became popular. First a sporting activity for the wealthy, this new means of locomotion quickly spread to a greater consuming public and a cry for better roads swept across the land. This book traces the history of America's early roads (1900-1916) with an emphasis on the famous Yellowstone Trail that stretched from Boston to Seattle through the northern tier of states. 8 1/2"x11", 208 pages, 276 photos, maps, documents.

ISHI'S JOURNEY: from the center to the edge of the world. by James Freeman. Historical novel of story of sole survivor of now-extinct Yahi Indians of N. CA. This gripping work of historical fiction allows us to see another side of the famous Yahi Indian. Ishi, the last of the Yahis, stumbled out of the Northern California wilderness in 1911, long after his people were thought to have died off. He had been one of five Yahis who had survived a massacre at the hands of white settlers. He lived a hidden existence for thirty years within sight of a white homestead without being discovered. Ishi spent his remaining years with two anthropologists from the University of California Medical Center in San Francisco, Alfred L. Kroeber and Thomas T. Waterman, where they recorded all that is known of his way of life. A tragic, sometimes mystical adventure (and romance), Ishi's Journey is a story of genocide and man's changing relationship with the environment. 224 pages.

High among the cold, windswept peaks of America's mountain West, strange and beautiful trees grow old but never age. The Bristlecone book: A Natural History of the World's Oldest Trees brings together for the first time the captivating facts about bristlecone and foxtail pines-trees that thrive in a harsh environment and live thousands of years-with a special focus on Great Basin Bristlecone pine, the oldest tree species on earth. In this extraordinary journey into the world of bristlecones, author Ronald Lanner exposes the trees' inner workings, taking apart a pine to examine bark, buds, needles, cones, and roots, and wood. He follows a tree's lifespan from seedling to great old age, presenting a new interpretation of stages of growth. He explains the unusual colors and forms that make bristlecones so picturesque, describes how the forces of nature influence the trees' unique shapes, and reveals their secrets of long life. Readers will discover where to go to see these trees and how to identify them. A stunning pageant of color photos shows off bristlecones and their remarkable growth patterns, and a map shows locations of groves. 118 pages, 6 x9.

LIFE OF A SOLDIER ON THE WESTERN FRONTIER. by Jeremy Agnew. What was it really like to be a soldier in the nineteenth-century American West? Their heads filled with images of glory and battle, most young men joined the frontier army only to endure a life of tedious drills, bad meals, uncomfortable quarters, and ill-fitting uniforms. Working hard seven days a week and in all weather, soldiers frequently found themselves lonely and bored, with little opportunity for advancement but many ways to be punished—all for $13 a month. Focusing on the Indian Wars period of the 1840s through the 1890s, Life of a Soldier on the Western Frontier captures the daily challenges faced by the typical enlisted man and explores the role soldiers played in the conquering of the American frontier. In addition to describing the nitty-gritty details of a soldier’s daily life, this fascinating study explores the Indian Wars from the perspective of both the military and the Indians and examines all aspects of the post–Civil War army, including its organization, its weapons, and its personnel. The book also contains two appendices, one summarizing significant battles and the other listing selected western forts. Both include site locations and information for visitors. Dozens of photos and several maps add to the reader’s understanding and enjoyment. Life of a Soldier on the Western Frontier is more than a convenient reference book—it’s also a gripping and affecting story.

INDIAN TALK: hand signals of the North American Indians. by Iron Eyes Cody. Guide to silent language used by Plains tribes for centuries. The North American continent was once populated by hundreds of Indian tribes who all spoke different languages. An incredible sign language developed whereby Indians who spoke different tongues were able to effectively communicate without saying a word. Alphabetically, 246 words, phrases, and counting methods of 'Indian Sign Language' are photographically depicted. Sign language was primarily a mechanism by which Plains groups could conduct trade activities. Sign language deals with ideas rather than individual words. Each sign or idea unit must be used in proper sequence and context, and with proper accent and delivery: the sign for 'question' may mean why, where, what, who, how many, or can you, will you, depending on the context in which it is used. The sign for 'eat' may mean 'to eat' or 'food.' 150 ills., 112 pages.

ROADSIDE HISTORY OF NEVADA. by Richard Moreno. "Rich Moreno is one of the most talented travel writers in the West. His knowledge of Nevada's farthest reaches and the unusual history of each place may be unmatched." —Ron James, Nevada state historical preservation officer. There's more to Nevada than one-armed bandits, cheap buffets, and Elvis impersonators. From ice ages to expeditions, Paiutes to pioneers, and dams to divorce seekers, Roadside History of Nevada provides an overview of the Silver State. Richard Moreno divides Nevada into six geographical-historical areas, rich and often surprising in detail: Pyramid Lake yielded a world-record 41-pound cutthroat trout; Virginia City housed Mark Twain when he wrote for the Territorial Enterprise; and Lovelock Cave was the site of one of the West's greatest archeological misunderstandings. Survey the boom and bust of the mining industry, trace the desperate plight of the Donner party trapped in Sierra snow, and observe the growth of gambling from low-profile to a neon-castle industry. 368 pages.

ROADSIDE GEOLOGY OF ARIZONA. by Halka Chronic. Explanation of geologic and landscape history of AZ. Roadside Geology of Arizona made sense of the landscape out the car window from the rise of mountains to the spread of deserts." —Arizona Daily Star. The rise of mountains and the spread of deserts has marked the geologic history of Arizona. Landscapes that we see today are here because of landscapes of the past, and because of tremendous forces deep within the earth, forces that carry continents into collisions and then drag them apart again, forces of heat and pressure and the slow churning boil of the earth's interior. Landscape features result, too, from more comprehensible, more recent forces: the unending attack of water and wind and frost, the building of volcanoes, and the short-term geologic happenings like landslides and rockfalls, earthquakes and floods, and a gopher digging a hole.

LIFE ON INTERTIDAL ROCKS: a guide to marine life of the rocky North Atlantic coast. by Cherie Hunter Day. Identifies plants and animals (Kelp, Sea Anemones, Sea Slugs, Crabs, and Starfish, and many more) that live in the intertidal zone of the rocky Atlantic Coast, from Rhode Island north to the Bay of Fundy.
The granite bedrock of this glacier-scoured coast forms a habitat with many places for living things to hide. The twice-daily rise and fall of the sea with the tides creates the intertidal zone, extending from the splash zone, which gets wet from wave splash at high tide, but is never under water, to the lower zone, which is exposed only during the most extreme low tides. Organisms that live here endure many stresses, including winter cold and ice, alternating exposure and submersion, pollution, and the danger of being ripped away by waves during a storm. This book will help you identify organisms that live in and on tidepools, rocks, pilings, and wharves, and understand how they survive. Illustrated with the author's clear and detailed line drawings. 64 pages.
