When reading Edmund C. Jaeger's articles and books, one is aware of a lucid and informative style of writing. In Deep Canyon, a Desert Wilderness for Science, Bill Jennings noted: "Among contemporary writers the author-scientist Edmund C. Jaeger of Riverside perhaps excels--in physical description, knowledge of the desert's natural history and the rare ability to make science understandable and alive to the lay reader."

An exhaustive list of Dr. Jaeger's many books, articles, letters, manuscripts, sketchbooks and other materials can be found in the newly-released biography
of Dr. Jaeger.

A number of the more popular books are available at local bookstores and the Riverside Municipal Museum.
