About the Book
Over the course of 21 paris of short essays, Nevle (left) and Nightingale (right) contemplate the natural phenomena found in the Sierra Nevada. From granite to aspen, to fire, to a rare, endemic species of butterfly, these essay pairs explore the natural history and mystical wonder of each wild element with a balanced and captivating touch.
