KIRKUS REVIEW

A meditative, philosophic account of a naturalist's multiform observations- not only on the birds, animals, flowers, trees and shrubs, but also on the interrelated effects of civilization on nature, the mysteries of behavior, customs, habits, the tonal qualities of outdoor living. A provocative presentation- of the part that fences play destroy wild life, as right of way brings more species back into safety; lures more types of birds and flowers; the dessication of modern poultry raising; fol and nature lore; bird and flower names; thorough investigations into the character, liary as well as physical, of the golden eagle, the mockingbird; a camping trip to the Mountains. Here- on the Edward's Plateau, is a leisurely deliberation on the world today on the personalities of plants, as well as animals and birds, on the conditioning of modern ways. Of a definite appeal to the contemplative reader with an interest in the outdoors.
