We need your L.A. book picks - not just great books but books that will clue a newcomer in to this place, physically and socially, its past, present and future.  As part of our ever-growing Southern California Close-Ups project, we're pulling together a list of volumes that speak volumes about Los Angeles - maybe 50 books, maybe more. We've already opened fiction debate on a previous  post (see below). Now, here are the beginnings of our nonfiction list, in no particular order.

A waterfall rushes down a canyon wall north of Arcadia. The wind heaps snow on aJoshua tree near Valyermo. Early morning sunlight illuminates a mountain peak by Mt. Wilson. In 107 photographs spread over 80 pages, the Angeles National Forest comes alive in a new book. "It might sound corny, but it's like a wedding picture," said the book's photographer, Roy Murphy of Covina. "The forest has many moods. The book shows the forest in its best light."

No mountain in Southern California boasts more terrific trails to its peak than Mt. Wilson, north of Pasadena and Sierra Madre. Hikers can choose from half a dozen memorable routes plus alternate trails, in combinations that never seem dull or repetitious. One of my favorite climbs starts on Winter Creek Trail.

On his way to San Gabriel Peak, John Robinson pauses to point out how deceiving the San Gabriel Mountains appear to those who haven't set foot on their rugged flanks. They look "round and easygoing," he says while hiking toward the sheer south slope. "But if you look up at the peak, you'll see the San Gabriels are not as gentle as people think. It's quite a face." Since he wrote "Trails of the Angeles" in 1971, thousands of Angelenos have found that out for themselves.

"There is no place on earth I'd rather be," said Morey, 59, a volunteer on the Vetter Mountain Lookout. The fire tower, 5,908 feet above sea level, recently reopened after 17 years in mothballs.
