New local history books from all over O.C.
Dr. Schoenherr’s new book explores the natural history of the creatures, plants, habitats, and landscapes that constitute the open spaces in Orange County. The Register described his book as, “packed with facts and stunning photos of wild land, habitat and species, as well as full-color maps. There are sections on climate, weather, seasons, wildfire, geology, earthquakes and the subtle intricacies of the tidal zones. And Schoenherr carefully untangles the web of federal, state, local and private wild land to make sense of the many overlapping jurisdictions.” Schoenherr is a retired Professor of Ecology from Fullerton College, and has written extensively about California’s natural history.
By my count Author's Night should provide you with AT LEAST eight books to buy, and certainly, some of the authors will bring copies of many of their earlier works for sale as well. And then you'll need to get extra copies as gifts for your friends and family.
You may just want to bring a pack mule for the trip home.
Hope to see you Thursday night!
