    A Complete Guide to Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument : For Hiking, Skiing, Climbing & Nature Viewing
    Klindt Vielbig 
    Native Americans called Mount St. Helens Loowit (Lady of Fire), and warned unheeding settlers to stay away. In 1980 the mountain proved out the Indian legends, erupting with enough force to send up a mushroom cloud 45 miles across and create the largest landslide in recorded history. This handy and well-organized guide provides all the historical, geological, biological, and recreational information you'll need to take advantage of a truly unique natural area. It's conveniently divided into four sections: Mount St. Helens West, East, South, and North. Each section begins with the lay of the land and general driving directions for scenic tours. A selection of hikes follows, each with a capsule description that includes elevation gain, length of hike, what maps to use, the best season to visit, and a difficulty rating. Trailhead driving routes are also provided. If you're hankering to walk, bike, horseback, ski, or take a scenic drive through post-volcanic devastation, or if you want to see just how quickly nature regenerates after a natural disaster, A Complete Guide to Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument is your ticket.

    National Audubon Society Field Guide to the Pacific Northwest
    by National Audubon Society, Peter Alden
    The Pacific Northwest is a cornucopia of extraordinary outdoor diversity. Pocket- and purse-friendly, this field guide covers habitats (subalpine meadows to rain forests to desert shrub to salt marshes) in addition to topography and geology (with explanations of the Oregon Dunes, Columbia Plateau Basalts, Mount St. Helens volcano, and a variety of minerals). Flora and fauna, however, make up the bulk of the book, with 1,000 of the most common species found in the Pacific Northwest. From mushrooms and algae to trees and wildflowers, fishes, frogs, flies, birds, and mammals, each species is identified with a color picture, short description, and notes on the habitat and season in which you'd encounter it. There's also an excellent chapter on Northwesterners' favorite topic of conversation--the weather--plus a guide to constellations and the night sky, for those evenings when it's clear. It behooves anyone who likes nature and lives in or visits the Pacific Northwest to carry the easy-to-use and beautifully put-together Audubon Society Field Guide at all times. --Stephanie Gold -
