Abstract:

John Hart unfolds the natural history of these centuries-old, towering redwoods, trees that seem to thrive on fog and fire. He reveals how this last remaining grove of redwoods so close to San Francisco survived the cutter's ax and why William Kent's woods are named for conservationist John Muir. And he examines an ancient forest that provides important habitat for spawning salmon and seldom-seen birds like the northern spotted owl and the pileated woodpecker. The significance, history, and ecology of the majestic coast redwoods are covered and their permanent protection in this popular national park is celebrated. An added bonus is a section with tips for visitors and suggested reading.
