"In this wide-ranging volume, Wallace (Articulate Earth), a conservationist and natural historian, celebrates the beauty of the San Francisco Bay and calls attention to its unique natural features... In highlighting such phenomena in urban environments, Wallace reminds readers that they don't always have to venture to the mountains or deep into the woods to commune with nature; sometimes they can simply walk a few blocks from home."--Publishers Weekly "Even if you've lived in the Bay Area your whole life, Mountains and Marshes will show you the region anew."--San Jose Mercury News
