How It Works:

For every book purchase you make from Spellbinder Books through links from this website via links provided, Spellbinder Books donates a generous percentage of the sale price back to us to support active protection of Eastern Sierra public lands. So now you can give back to the Eastern Sierra by supporting local, independent business! Incidentally, a good place to start looking for the answers to the above questions are: Place Names of the Sierra Nevada, by Peter Browning, and A Field Guide to Western Reptiles and Amphibians, by Robert Stebbins.
