Floods and Droughts in the Tulare Lake Basin: Black and White Edition By John T. Austin Cover Image


This is the exact same book as the full-color version that sells for $65 except this edition has only black and white photos and charts. Two charts in particular may be more difficult to understand without color. However, a link is provided in the book to a free website that includes all of the color art, photos, charts, and graphs. This is a much less expensive version for those who mostly want the info without the cost and have online access. This book tells the fascinating story of floods and droughts that have occurred in the Tulare Lake Basin during the last 2,000 years. It records captivating first-hand accounts associated with those floods and droughts, many dating from the pioneer days. This book documents the storms behind the floods, the causes of the floods, and the record snowpacks in the Sierra. It also describes Tulare Lake, and the amazing wildlife diversity and abundance that was to be found in and around Tulare Lake in the 1850s. This technical yet reader-friendly book is an extensively researched document into an important subject for those who live in this region.
