Charles Hood presents his book, Wild Sonoma
Charles Hood, co-author of "Wild Sonoma: Exploring Nature in Wine Country", will be at Readers' Books on Wednesday, February 1st at 6:00 p.m. Written with naturalist Lynn Horowitz and ecologist Jeanne Wirka, "Wild Sonoma" is a celebration of the dynamic ecosystems that make our home county both beautiful and resilient. This unique guide is divided into three sections: an in-depth exploration of the Russian River watershed, followed by detailed depiction of sixty-two of the region's iconic plant and animal species, and concluding with six Sonoma excursions. Good for both adventure-seeking tourists and nature-loving locals, this book explores not just the wonders of our environment but the actions we must take to preserve it.
Charles Hood has studied birds and natural history from the Amazon to tTibet, and he has seen more than five thousand species of birds in the wild. In addition to creating several field guides to mammals and birds, he is a widely published poet and the author of "A Salad Only the Devil Would Eat".
