KIRKUS REVIEW

Two well known nature writers offer concise descriptions of their own New England locate and say a great deal about ecology in general. Opening with a short bird's eye view of the country and its geological history, they go on to describe the complex habitats and denizens of forest, pond, stream, meadow, tree tops and peat bogs; the changes made by seasons and natural disasters; and the historical and present-day destructive influences of man's intrusion. The book is alive in all its detail and provides a useful corollary to Rachel Carson's Silent Spring.
