Living surrounded by a landscape mix of farmlands, woodlands, creeks and bayous instilled in them an appreciation of the natural world, reinforced by family trips into the Rocky Mountains and around America’s national parks, then into their separate adult years living in and visiting areas across the Pacific Northwest, Canada, and Alaska.Eventually their appreciation of the outdoor world revealed itself through their creative work, the results of which have been brought together here—combining Owens’ intriguing visuals and notes, along with Barnes’ factual narrative sprinkled with nature-related essays and other pieces, and stirring quotations of well-known naturalists and nature writers—all combined with the purpose of sharing and increasing awareness and respect of one’s natural surroundings.In this first FOOTFALLS in Nature series (FOOTFALLS 1-4), each volume contains a kaleidoscope of 100 or more of Owens’ images divided into three primary sections, focusing on mammals, birds, and landscapes.

These four volumes include:FOOTFALLS 1: Across Plains and ValleysFOOTFALLS 2: Near Water’s EdgeFOOTFALLS 3: Into the WoodsFOOTFALLS 4: Toward High HorizonsEach highlights wildlife in a particular environment, ranging from lower to higher elevation habitats. For instance, FOOTFALLS 1 focuses on wildlife found in lower-elevation brushlands and grasslands. FOOTFALLS 2 focuses on riparian areas where land meets water, such as along rivers, streams, lakes, etc..

FOOTFALLS 3 presents wildlife relating to forested areas, while FOOTFALLS 4 includes mammals and bird life often found in the higher-elevation subalpine and alpine zones.As you begin to read through this series, you might imagine yourself exploring a trail you have never walked before- one that will take you to new places with new places with new sights.
