I apologize in advance for the high price of the print-on-demand book. Unlike commercially printed books that are produced by the thousands, print-on-demand means each book is printed when it is ordered. I have no pile of books in the garage and must pay Blurb's price to order a copy even for myself. That said, I believe you will not be disappointed to own a copy of this unique book of high quality Mt. Tam nature photography. Please check out my blog for the latest Mt.
