recommend to all."

"I wish we'd had [this book] when we studied  natural history  70
years ago"
- Edgar Dunning, Delta Optimist

"The author’s fondness for her subject is shown most clearly in her
writing, which is very accessible, even to those lacking expertise in
natural history.....What makes this book a very handsome addition to
one's library, is the photography of David Blevins, who has an
inventive eye for grand vistas, tiny subjects and everything in
between. Were you to move away from this part of the world you
would want the collection of images in this book to remind you of your
favourite former stomping grounds and natural moments"
