I initially picked up this book because of the cover, I admit it. What I found was not one of those ubiquitous books "about nature". In these 20 essays, the author writes about the more unusual forms flora and fauna all around us from the perspective of herself as a young girl and then as an adult. Each story is a carefully crafted gem in which the personal and the natural history are woven together, to create a loving portrait of her family. Makes a great gift!!
