The Gottlieb Native Garden: an intimate wildlife journey

For over five years, the garden’s naturalist, Scott Logan, devoted himself to documenting and photographing the wildlife in Susan and Dan Gottlieb’s renowned Los Angeles garden. The Gottlieb Native Garden: an intimate wildlife journey reveals the astonishing range of biodiversity that’s capable of thriving in our backyards when the right plants and habitat are established.

Scott’s photography and Jacob Lang’s text distill the experience into an intimate and moving close-up view of the wildlife residing in our city, and captures the complexity — and interconnectedness — of nature.

Intended for beginning and expert gardeners alike, this book invites its readers to marvel at the phenomenal nature of our nonhuman neighbors and reconsider our connections to these miraculous creatures with whom we share our home.
