Hansen’s Field Guide to the Birds of the Sierra Nevada by Keith Hansen, Edward C. Beedy, and Adam Donkin

Identify and learn about over two hundred and fifty birds of the Sierra Nevada. Paired with stunningly detailed portraits is text informed by decades of birding experience—prose that while firmly grounded in expertise will nonetheless delight readers with its whimsy, allusion, and affection.

“Not just a guide to identifying birds, but a guide to knowing birds. With Keith as narrator you can be sure it’s both illuminating and entertaining.”

—DAVID ALLEN SIBLEY, author of What It’s Like to Be a Bird

An Indian among los Indígenas: A Native Travel Memoir by Ursula Pike

In her mid-twenties, Ursula Pike (Karuk) served in the Peace Corps in Bolivia; her memoir of that time offers a refreshing perspective on a culturally complicated organization and asks hard questions about colonizers, the colonized, and where the two groups might overlap.

The Indigenous peoples Pike lived and worked with speak loudly from these pages, challenging many of us to check privileges we didn’t know we had, demanding the right to be complex, strong, and human. This book is all heart, all vulnerability, as a young California Indian woman makes family far from home.”

—Deborah Miranda (Ohlone Costanoan Esselen), author of Bad Indians

Deep Hanging Out: Wanderings and Wonderment in Native California by Malcolm Margolin

Since the early 1970s, Malcolm Margolin has been wandering around and writing about Native California, offering illumination into a valuable but long-neglected world and body of knowledge.

“Malcolm Margolin is an American treasure. His publications and community service have uplifted the citizens of California, especially the cultural contributions of the Indigenous peoples of California.”

Joy Harjo (Mvskoke), United States poet laureate, author of An American Sunrise

The Magic Years: Scenes from a Rock-and-Roll Life by Jonathan Taplin

Jonathan Taplin, former tour manager for Bob Dylan and the Band, film producer, and cultural critic, tells the story of a nation turning from idealism to nihilism—and makes a convincing case for art’s power and potential.

“The Magic Years: Scenes from a Rock-and-Roll Life reads like a Magical Mystery Tour of music, loss, beauty, family, justice, and social upheaval.”

—Rosanne Cash

The Forests of California: A California Field Atlas by Obi Kaufmann

An epic story that spans millions of years, nearly one hundred species of trees, and an astonishing richness of ecosystems, The Forests of California: A California Field Atlas offers a new understanding of the more-than-human world.

“Obi Kaufmann’s books are like bibles to me. They are, honestly, the outdoor guides I’ve looked for for decades.”

Dave Eggers
