About the Author:

ROB SANDELIN is a naturalist and environmental educator who has since childhood spent much of his life observing and studying nature in the mountains of the Northwest.

He lives with family and friends in the Sharingwood Cohousing Community in Snohomish County.

Review:

A good, all-purpose field guide is something to treasure. Field Guide to the Cascades & Olympics is such a book. (Bend (OR) Bulletin)

Small enough to fit in a pack, it delivers a wealth of information. (East Oregonian)

Excellent, all-color illustrations identify nearly 200 flowering plants plus amphibians, butterflies, mushrooms, and lots more. (Seattle Times)

This book looks to be rather useful and functional: the cover is rugged and durable material, and the book is printed on hearty, slick paper that looks designed to take the abuse doled out in the field." (Sequim Gazette)

A volume steeped in pure love of the area it describes....Arguably the best book of its type for non-professionals. The paintings are in true color and the information is precise and concise. (Salem (OR) Statesman-Journal)

For those people who can't decide whether to pack a bird, plant, mushroom, rock, or insect book on hikes, here is a field guide to everything. (Bellingham Herald)

I'm constantly rifling through the pages learning new flowers and birds that embrace our beautiful and diverse mountains. (Sports Etc.)

An ideal backpack companion for people who want to know about the plants and animals they encounter on hikes. (Eugene Register-Guard)

Take [a copy of this book] on your brief excursions into the mountains. You'll be surprised how often you refer to it and what satisfaction it brings. (Centralia Chronicle)

Clearly organized...Beside the illustrations are brief descriptions of each item. You won't be able to tell a meadow vole from a northern bog lemming without it. (Olympian)
