Spirit of the Siskiyous: The Journals of a Mountain Naturalist
For twenty-five years, Mary Paetzel roamed the Siskiyou Mountains of southern Oregon, tracking rare plants and insects and recording her experiences in a series of illustrated journals. A rugged land of peaks, canyons, and rushing rivers, the Siskiyous are renowned for their unusual plant life. Traversing logging roads in an old Volkswagen bus and hiking the high country, this self-taught naturalist came to know the Siskiyous as few ever have. Spirit of the Siskiyous gathers the best of Mary Paetzel's writings along with selections of her paintings and drawings, many in full color. With their descriptions of wildflowers, birds, butterflies, bees, and wasps, the journal entries collected here are an important natural history of the Siskiyou Mountains. Together, they also chronicle one woman's personal journey through a little-known, but fascinating, wilderness.
