"As I come to these final sentences, I sit here wondering if the time will ever come when such a book as this will seem like a letter from another world. Will the richness of the natural world be overrun and more and more replaced with a plastic artificial, substitute? The threat is real.

This book is written in journal style, with an entry for every day of the year, beginning with March 21 - the first day of spring. I began it late last year - in April, but caught up to the date and after that read the daily entry each day. It was a lovely slow way to read, and fun to see the similarities and differences between the author’s New England climate and my own southern one.

Set down on the spot and in season, it is a richly varied interweaving of discoveries, reflections, original observations, remembrances, firsthand experiences and fresh insights into nature. A companion volume to Teale's A Naturalist Buys an Old ...more

The author's writing is often cheesy and boring, but I still give it three stars because I'm interested in the subject matter and because I found a hawk's feather tucked in between two of the pages. ...more
