Naturalist's Big Bend: An Introduction to the Trees
In southwest Texas where the Rio Grande arcs southward into Mexico lies Big Bend National Park, 708,221 acres of river floodplain, desert, grasslands, and majestic mountains, a richly varied environment that exist more or less as it did before man’s arival. The wealth of the Big Bend is in its dramatic landscape, which provides natural habitats ranging form desert to alpine, and its consequently impressive variety of flora and fauna.Intended as a biological introduction to one of the nation’s outstanding natural systems, Naturalist’s Big Bend highlights the distinctive plants and animal of the region, such as the century plant, which grows twenty-five to fifty-five years, blooms magnificently, and dies; candelilla, from which wax is made; prickly pear cactus; the javelina, North America’s only native pig; the colima warbler; the rare Texas lyre snake; the Big Bend gambusia fish; the tarantula; and the Big Bend quonker katydid.This comprehensive field guide, revised and enlarged in a new edition, describes the area’s archaeology and history, and details the characteristics and habitats of Big Bend’s trees and shrubs, wildflowers, cacti, mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians, fish, and invertebrates. It also outlines walking and driving tours of the most likely spots ...

Joshua Tree National Park Poster - Original Artwork - 13" x 19" by Rob Decker - WPA Style
Joshua Tree National Park Poster - Original Artwork
The Joshua Tree National Park Poster is an original work of art, numbered, signed and signed by the artist. The poster is created in the style of the Works Progress Administration (WPA), when the Federal Government - in the 1930s and 1940s - commissioned hundreds of artists to create thousands of poster designs for public exhibits, community activities, theatrical productions, health, safety and educational programs, nature and travel. By the end of the WPA era, only 26 National Parks had been established and only 14 parks had posters created for them. Photographer and graphic artist, Rob Decker, studied photography with Ansel Adams in the summer of 1979 in Yosemite National Park when he was just 19, an experience that solidified his love of photography and our National Parks. Now he is on a journey to photograph and create iconic WPA-style posters of all 59 major national parks in time for the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service in 2016. This is NOT a reproduction of a poster made during the WPA era. This is original artwork, created from original photography...in the 21st Century!!! Full-color. 13" x 19" Original artwork. Numbered, dated and signed by the artist.

National Parks of America: Experience America's 59 National Parks (Lonely Planet)
National Parks of America: Experience America's 59 National
To celebrate America's amazing national parks, Lonely Planet, the world's leading travel publisher, takes you on an informative and gorgeous tour of all 59 parks with our lavishly finished hardcover gift guide packed with detailed itineraries and practical tips on what to do and see in each park to get you started planning your next adventure. America's national parks are full of timeless marvels that still rejuvenate the soul: the world's largest trees in Sequoia; its most spectacular geothermal site in Yellowstone; the grandest canyon. Perhaps the movement's most eloquent description that is still resonates came from national parks advocate John Muir: 'Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity...' Fortunately for the nerve-shaken, over-civilized people of then and now, President Woodrow Wilson created the National Parks Service (NPS) on August 25, 1916, though the drive to protect some of America's most remarkable wild spaces, to be 'used and preserved for the benefit of mankind', began in the 1860s. From Acadia to Zion, this beautiful introduction to America's preserved natural treasures is packed with landscape photography, original wildlife illustrations, and pract...

Little Big Bend: Common, Uncommon, and Rare Plants of Big Bend National Park (Grover E. Murray Studies in the American Southwest)
Little Big Bend: Common, Uncommon, and Rare Plants
Plant life in Big Bend National Park is incredibly diverse. The wide range of habitats within the park—desert, foothills, mountains and moist woodlands, river canyons and floodplain—as well as the Big Bend’s three major blooming seasons of spring, summer, and fall—guarantee a stunning show of botanical variety throughout the year. Little Big Bend is not a traditional guide to the area’s common plants. Although it features many species that are characteristic of the Chihuahuan Desert environment, species such as orchids are also included precisely because they are uncommon or rare and therefore a special thrill to find. Plants not seen in other wildflower guides, or those with a limited geographic range that the reader will less likely encounter elsewhere, are pictured here. This guide describes 109 species found in the United States only in Trans-Pecos Texas; 62 of these occur only in the Big Bend portion of the Trans-Pecos, and 24 of them only within Big Bend National Park. Of the 252 featured species, 71 are considered “sensitive plants”; in Texas, 28 are classified as critically imperiled, 18 as imperiled, and 25 as vulnerable.The emphasis of this book is on the little in the Big Bend, the overlooked small plants or inconspicuous tiny flowers of larger plants tha...
