“Galen Rowell’s Bay Area Wild is a vivid evocation, and a record of heritage… a book to dream over and an instruction manual on how to see.”

Galen Rowell’s brilliant photography brings us back to that wonderful world of nature that exists all around us here in the Bay Area–and it truly is a joy to behold.”

Bay Are Wild combines the intense excitement of world-class nature photography with the affection and intimacy of a lifelong resident. The images are at the same time startlingly new yet deeply familiar; what a welcome, much needed, invigorating book.”
