    This book describes the plants and animals of the Sierra Nevada mountains in California. The most interesting section for me was the ecological distribution (and association) section in the front of the book.

    Very valuable reference for anyone traveling through the Sierra range. Easy to use and full of good information. An all-purpose field guide for those who only want to carry one book.
