Fine in Like New jacket. 0292764405 Dust jacket condition: Like New. Inscribed and SIGNED by author at the flyleaf. Realms of Beauty explores five wilderness areas in East Texas where, in places, we are privileged to see scenes that have nearly vanished from this earth: creek banks where the yellow lady's slipper orchid still blooms, or shaded vales where the rare Swainson's warbler has nested every year for more than a thousand years. Comprising 34, 000 acres of East Texas forestland north and west of the Big Thicket, these five wildernesses not only hold the key to the region's past but also reveal how much the flora and fauna have changed. This book introduces the distinctive plant communities and other key features of these wildernesses, designated as such by Congress in 1984. Then, scene by scene, it brings to life each area in informative and interesting text and beautiful color photographs. 116 pages. Wilderness areas--Texas, Natural history--Texas.
