About the Author

Growing up in the East Bay as the son of an astrophysicist and a psychologist, Obi Kaufmann spent most of high school practicing calculus and breaking away on weekends to scramble around Mount Diablo and map its creeks, oak forests, and sage mazes. Into adulthood, he would regularly journey into the mountains, spending more summer nights without a roof than with one. For Kaufmann, the epic narrative of the California backcountry holds enough art, science, mythology, and language for a hundred field atlases to come. When he is not backpacking, you can find the painter-poet at his desk in Oakland, posting @coyotethunder #trailpaintings on social media.

Reviews

"[A] gorgeously illustrated compendium."--Sunset

"If you're looking for freeways or pathways, expressways or BART lines, this book can't help you. If, on the other hand, you're looking to get lost in the flora, fauna, and natural habitats that exist across California beyond the I-5, this is a wonderful little guide."--AFAR

"A modern-day masterpiece."--Kit Stolz, Santa Barbara Independent

"Transcend[s] the genre of nature writing."--Monterey County Weekly

"A revelation. Kaufmann educates and delights the reader simultaneously."--Mike Sonksen, Entropy
