KIRKUS REVIEW

Not for the professional naturalist, this simply written book by a Pennsylvania housewife deals with nature study in general and with birds, fossils and shells in particular. Illustrated by Charles Hargens, the book, in effect is a ""how-to"" volume, which tells the amateur collector what to collect and how to preserve and house his collections. Despite its occasional descents into sentimentality, a natural for the growing army of nature hobbyists.
