Booknews
This volume celebrates in beautiful color photos and text the arid lands of eastern Washington. It explores the many faces of the shrub-steppe that remain visible by probing its hidden niches and the specialized plants and creatures that inhabit them, examining how native tribes lived, and pondering the recollections of early white visitors. The reader can look at the way civilization has played across the Columbia Basin, and the way decisions of the past and present will affect its future. Nisbet is an award-winning author who has pursued a lifelong interest in natural history by exploring the region between the Cascades and the Rockies. Annotation c.
