CITY GEESE by Ron Hirschi


Email this review


A look at wild Canadian geese in urban settings by the author and photographer of One Day on Pika's Pike. Striking full-color photographs are an attractive addition to this nature biography; the text provides appealing facts about the history and life cycle of geese. But on the whole, this title is less successful than Kalas' The Goose Family Book, which provides firsthand insights, in-depth information, and outstanding photographs. Here, though the author exhibits admiration and enthusiasm for his subject, details are missing, and he occasionally becomes tangled in similies. The index appears to include some references of little consequence. A dramatic jacket design will encourage nature browsers. An adequate additional nature title.
