Following the lifelong work by expert of the American Southwest’s botanical landscape, Ralph D. Cornell, this publication is a cumulation of his extensive nature photography and masterful familiarity with the plant world particular to the California coastline. An experienced landscape architect, Cornell’s advice ranges from a respect for the implicit structures that biologically sustain the ecosystem to application in one’s own gardening and backyard design. Moving chapter by chapter from California plant to plant, Cornell offers underdtanding of not only how to live and care for oneself or one’s garden, but how to notice the world around you with new eyes, to find and newly appreciate all the life around you.
