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.

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. Illustrated, 320 pages. OUT

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?'

sand barriers of the Gulf Coast, and across central

GEOLOGY UNDERFOOT IN DEATH VALLEY AND OWENS VALLEY.
by Robert Sharp & Allen Glazner. "Robert Sharp

—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.

ROCK ART SAVVY: The Responsible Visitor's Guide to Public Sites of the
Southwest. Ronald D. Sanders. This user-friendly guide describes
more than 100 mostly public, easy-access rock art sites in Arizona,
southern California, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, and western
Texas, with a special section on Baja California, Mexico. Written in a
lively, conversational style and brimming with helpful information,
Rock Art Savvy shows both novices and seasoned rock art aficionados
how to get the most from their visits while respecting the integrity of
the sites. Rock Art Savvy includes all the information visitors need for
enjoying the selected sites. Part 1 is devoted to general information
about rock art and the people who created it. Part 2 provides
state-by-state listings, including directions to, descriptions of, and
contact information for each site. One hundred black-and-white photos
and eight color plates enhance the text, and a comprehensive glossary
explains many less-familiar terms.
Like many rock art preservation advocates, the author believed that most
vandalism is done out of ignorance; therefore, the best way to protect
these fragile treasures is to increase public awareness. Encouraging
people to visit petroglyph and pictograph sites allows them to see the
beauty and value of rock art for themselves.
Curious travelers, amateur archaeologists, students of indigenous
American cultures, and rock art enthusiasts of every level will find
wisdom and delight in this smart, practical book. 264 pages.

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.

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)
OWLS BY DAY AND NIGHT. by Tyler/Phillips. This work includes 16 color plates and very comprehensive information covering all eighteen species of owls found within the United States and Canada. "Many of us have a special fascination for owls. This book will introduce the novice to the personalities and habits of owls, and how they differ by species. It will bring the expert up-to-date on the present status of some of the rarer species and most of all, if you are even the slightest bit interest in owls, it will excite your aesthetic senses with the beautiful illustrations by Don Phillips. It is written in a style that anyone can understand and enjoy, and it also includes a number of tables which list distinctions between the species, areas where they will be found, and the major calls of each owl. Eighteen species of owls are covered, and each is portrayed on life-like color plates. The book is richly illustrated with drawings, halftones, plus some photographs done by Esther Phillips. We congratulate Don and Esther for a job beautifully done. This book is one you would take pride in owning for its beauty and its information." (Audubon Society Book Review, Sept. 1978) 208 pages.

ROADSIDE GEOLOGY OF WASHINGTON. David D. Alt &
Donald W. Hyndman. State's rock and landforms,
directions on where to see and understand them. "Through the Roadside Geology of Washington . .
. I've started to make sense of . . . the natural features
of our state . . . from the vast volcanic flows that formed
the Columbia Plateau . . . to the 1980 eruption of Mount St.
Helens." —Kristin Jackson, Seattle Times. The geology of Washington is a story of
islands--micro-continents--coming in from the sea. Two
hundred million years ago most of Washington consisted of
two large islands, each one a scrap of continent, lying
somewhere in the vastness of the Pacific Ocean. One after
the other they docked onto the North American continent,
each adding its distinctive bit to the complex geologic and
geographic mosaic of western North America. Illustrated. 320

could be played by only asking for the numbers on the cards such as 8A, 8B, 8C,
of 8D. A more advanced game would be to ask for the shells by their common
names. For the serious collector or student the game could involve asking for
the scientific names as well as the common name.

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."

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.

of sandpaintings with their interpretations of the ceremonial significance. Sandpainting is a very old
Southwest Indian Art in which the Medicine Man "paints" loosely upon the ground,
or, on some occasions, upon buckskin or cloth, by letting the sands flow with
control and skill through his sensitized fingers. He may use also, in
conjunction with the sands of natural color, corn meal, flower pollen, powdered
roots and bark, in the execution of this ritual.
Because of the sacred nature of this ceremony, the sandpainting is begun,
finished, used, and destroyed within a twelve hour period (either night or day).

Speerstra. Story of Mound Builder Indian culture of
Mississippi River valley.
Follows Yellow Moon, a girl of twelve, through the months of a year, in daily
life, migrations, and tribal festivals. An archeologically
authentic novel about an ancient native North American culture called Mound
Builders. The name derives from the thousands of earth mounds they raised,
primarily as burial sites, throughout the eastern and midwestern United States.
Mound excavations have revealed a wealth of information about Mound Builders:
they were a peaceful, highly religious people who conducted a wide trade in
items such as copper from Lake Superior and seashells from the Atlantic and Gulf
coasts. This is the story of the Hopewellian Mounds which are spread
throughout the Mississippi basin and into western New York. Two sites in this
area are mentioned--the Grave Creek Mound in West Virginia which rises 70 feet
with a 300-foot diameter and the Serpent Mound in Ohio which winds and curls for
almost a quarter mile.

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 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.
