Michael Kauffman, author of the hiking guide, Conifer Country, has a new book coming out–a field guide to all 65 species of conifers on the West Coast: Conifers of the Pacific Slope. Conifers are some of the oldest plants on the plant and include a number of world-record holders (and right here in California):
1. The largest living thing: the giant sequoia
2. The tallest living thing: the redwood
3. The oldest living thing: the bristlecone pine
Michael will be at Eureka Books on June 1, from 6 to 9 pm, during Arts Alive. He’ll sign books and answer all your conifer questions.
