bookshelves: animals, nature, science, nonfiction

To be honest, I liked this book, but I didn't love it as much as I loved The Hidden Life of Trees.

This is a smorgasbord of a book about the wiseness of nature. Peter Wohlleben takes on wolves and ants and bark beetles and forest fires and deciduous vs. evergreen trees and climate change and species diversity...whew. There is a lot of great thoughts here. But it lacked focus and felt like a bit of a ramble to me. I couldn't decide---three stars or four? I finally settled on four, even though, in my heart, I felt like three would be more accurate.
