The Natural History of the San Francisco Peaks by Gwendolyn L. Waring, Ph.D.
The San Francisco Peaks is a sky island on the edge of the Colorado Plateau and the southern deserts. Of all the stories it tells, once again the endless change that is such a part of this world is on full display, here driven by land formation, insane Pleistocene and Holocene climates, the building of a volcanic mountain, and the mountain life forms that somehow found this island and stayed through it all. Lists of plants, birds, mammals and fungi are presented, along with a chapter on the water that this mountain oasis draws!
