Holmes, with the help of various experts, takes a close look at what’s living in her own backyard in Portland, Maine (my state’s biggest city). From the worms to the crows to the cute chipmunk she lets into her home, Holmes succeeds at making the suburban landscape absolutely fascinating. She’s your everyday sort of nature writer, because when she spent this year of observation she knew as much as you or me would about what goes on in the American backyard. She loves the environment, but is as squeamish as the next person when it comes to bugs in the house. Fun style, informative and interesting content = must-read.
