KIRKUS REVIEW

A collaboration of father and son (although Donald Culross Peattie authors the majority of the essays here) which records ""the common and lovely miracles of natural life"", blends the scientific, the legendary with an appreciation which is consistently communicative. The wind, fire, snow, sunlight, the moon, the evening star, fireflies and bats, the hummingbird and birdsong, pollen and honey, ferns and the spider's gossamer, all provoke fact and fancy, are described with an eye for the changeless charms of the natural world. The informative values here, as well as the contemplative, make this suitable for a younger market as well as Peattie's well established following.
