Charles Francis Saunders (1859-1941) was born to Quaker parents in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He and his first wife, Elisabeth Hallowell Saunders (D. 1910), were avid naturalists; Charles began publishing essays on botany as early as the 1890s. They also collaborated on a number of publications - he as author and she as illustrator.

After  a honeymoon trip to California and the southwest in 1902, the couple moved permanently to Pasadena, where Charles devoted himself full time to writing.

He eventually published more than a dozen books inspired by California and the southwest. Both Charles and Elisabeth were amateur photographers, and many of their photos were used to illustrate his books: The Indians Of The Terraced Houses (1912) and And Under The Sky In California (1913). In 1921, Saunders married Mira Barrett Culin (D. 1968) whom he had met at the Pasadena Garden Club. Also a writer, Mira shared Saunders' interest in gardens, botany, and photography. 

First with Elisabeth, and then with Mira, Saunders traveled throughout California and the southwest, photographing all of the California ,missions, natural wonders, Native Americans and flora. These interests became the subjects of 18 books and numerous essays and articles Saunders published in his lifetime.
