    The ecosystems within Mount Rainier National Park in Washington state are diverse-from subalpine meadow to old-growth forest-and support a variety of birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, mammals, and plants. Mount Rainier describes and illustrates in full color each of these plant and animal species and explores the park's geological history, land use issues, native people, and past explorers-at once a traveler's guide, field guide, and natural history of one of America's most popular and extraordinary national parks.
