Book Reviews of California Chaparral.

1. "The California Chaparral, by W. S. Head, is 100 pages of narrative style descriptions of plants, animals, birds, and reptiles of the drier chaparral region. Many illustrations illuminate the book and help in the identification of plants and animals....The author lived in the Chaparral country and by so doing grew to appreciate a part of the land that many people give no thought to. He makes use of his own observations and notes taken on many an outing to tell the reader of the fascinating antics of the Chaparral creatures." (Huntington Beach Independent, Sept. 21, 1972)
