Rivers of Birds, Forests of Tule; Central Valley Nature & Culture in Season by Lilian Vallee

A collection of short essays, written between 2003 and 2018, which are a record of affection and concern for a place, the Central Valley, whose beauty and potential are often left unacknowledged and unrealized. The essays are an invitation, not to myopic boosterism, but to serious and convivial engagement in change augmenting the natural and cultural strengths of the Central Valley bioregion.
