Description: The spiny succulents of California and Nevada have long been a
source of fascination for explorers, naturalists, and horticulturists. The
newly published book, "Cacti, Agaves, and Yuccas of California and Nevada,"
examines the natural history of these plants, including origins, ecology,
and conservation. It also provides practical horticultural advice for
cultivation. Meet the author at this Bay Area premiere and learn about these
unique plants and how to grow them.
