Molly Hashimoto, author and illustrator of Birds of the West and Colors of the West, has created another beautiful look at the natural world in Mount Rainier National Park: An Artist's Tour. When you experience such expansive beauty as is found at Mount Rainier, she says, “you want to tell everyone else about it, and for me, art is how I communicate my passion.”

Featuring Hashimoto’s watercolor paintings and sketches, this book follows along the national park’s main road to offer an “artist’s tour.” Through evocative anecdotes, natural history, and park history, it explores the major visitor areas, natural wonders, popular landmarks, and park flora and fauna, including everyone’s favorite, marmots! Her lush palette captures Rainier through the seasons and in all its glorious details, creating a keepsake for visitors and residents alike.

MOLLY HASHIMOTO explores parks and wildlife refuges all over the West, seeking inspiration for her sketches, paintings, and prints. Her work appears on calendars and cards, and she is the author and artist of Colors of the West and Birds of the West.
