This is really cool. Nature in the City: Seattle: Walks Hikes Wildlife Natural Wonders isn't a book I'd read straight through, but it will draw you in. It functions as a reference -- one with fascinating stories and details not only about Seattle's current natural environment, but also about the city's natural and human history. I feel inspired to become much more closely acquainted with the place I live. Want to join me for a walk?
this was disappointing. It's not that there isn't good information in there, there is. It's just, well, not what I was expecting I guess. I thought there'd be more walks. The information was often lacking. wanted to learn about some new walks and hikes, and perhaps some great wildlife tidbit I didn't already know, but really it was just more of the same. Perhaps it's better for someone who doesn't live here.
I had a lot of fun reading this book and finding out little bits of trivia about Seattle's natural environment. I especially enjoyed the info about North Seattle Community College's interesting history since I live near there. I found this tobe more of a dip-in-and-peruse book and less of a "where shall I hike and what will I see" reference book.
