This beautiful book features over 250 color photos from the Mendonoma Coast, the vast majority taken by nature photographer Craig Tooley. Jeanne writes a weekly column, Mendonoma Sightings, in the Independent Coast Observer, which has appeared for more than eight years. This book is a compilation of her work in the Independent Coast Observer.
Her book is filled with wildlife encounters, fun facts and, perhaps most important, what you can hope or expect to see each month of the year, from the tiniest wildflower blooming in a forest to the largest creature on earth, the Blue Whale.
"Visitors to our community owned bookstore are often curious about the fauna, flora and nature's creations that make our Sonoma/Mendocino Coast so special. Jeanne Jackson has created this beautiful book that answers all their questions. It's the perfect gift for family and friends who want to know why we love where we live." Ed Connolly, Four-Eyed Frog Books
"This wonderful book of photos, explanations and encounters, will expand your awareness of the coast and its abundance. Settle into a favorite reading spot to savor ... but then get on out there! Your eyes will be sharper; your mind will be richer and nature will have come closer." Donlyn Lyndon, author with Jim Alinder of The Sea Ranch: Fifty Years of Architecture, Landscape, Place and Community on the Northern California Coast
