Beauty and the Beast: California Wildflowers and Climate Change

  • $ 55.95

Experience California's wildflowers as you’ve never seen them before in an exciting new coffee table book by award-winning photographers Nita Winter and Rob Badger. The book pairs thoughtful essays by today's conservation leaders with sweeping super bloom imagery and painstaking field photography of the most delicate blossoms. 

Look closer, the photographers ask of you. This beauty is fragile, and the world is changing. Some photos will look like studio imagery -- even illustrations -- but use only the light of the sun.

Rob and Nita have lugged their gear — all 85 pounds of their portable photo studio — through rattle-snake-infested deserts, high mountain passes, and post-wildfire territory to share these photos with you.

As the essays in the book attest, the climate is changing. Habitat disappears in the face of development. The changes to the landscape play out before our eyes. And what we protect becomes a testament to what we value.

Beauty and the Beast is Rob and Nita’s hopeful, passionate response that the transformational power of beauty can be an inspirational call to action.
