Illustration - "Life on the Edge"

A Guide to California's Endangered Natural Resources
May 1994
Illustration -

I was the primary staff illustrator for Life on the Edge.The 500-page compendium received multiple awards for design and content and was praised by the Smithsonian Museum for its readability, accuracy and aesthetics. Contributors to the volume include most of the prominent researchers in Californian wildlife biology.

Named by California Academy of Sciences 1997 List of Ten Books No California Naturalist Should Be Without. 


"The incredible nature photography and illustrations are reason enough to buy this book! Life on the Edge... is a book like no other. It is both specific and thorough in its description of the plants, wildlife, habitats of California that are most endangered and does so in a in a visually stunning format. It provides life history information for each species, maps that represent species/habitat occurrence, strategies for conservation and recovery, as well as supplying references on each topic for further research.

The book elegantly simplifies the complex issues surrounding natural resource management in California. It also provides a well-written ecological, legal, and historical background to why our state's precious natural resources have become so imperiled. Life On The Edge is both a detailed reference guide and an impressive addition to the coffee table.

The book is intended for experts and lay people alike. But really, anybody who has a love and appreciation of California should own "Life on the Edge." 

"More than 500 color pages packed with memorable images from famous photographers accompanies a fine review of California's endangered wildlife, with interviews with wildlife experts and essays on the subject supplementing a fine historical and scientific review. An excellent, basic reference, this surpasses almost all other efforts in the subject area, providing the latest research."
