5.0 out of 5 stars Useful and Interesting Read, March 22, 2009
This review is from: Deer-Resistant Landscaping: Proven Advice and Strategies for Outwitting Deer and 20 Other Pesky Mammals (Paperback)
In _Deer-Resistant Landscaping_, Neil Soderstrom has written much more than a how-to book about "Proven Advice and Strategies for Outwitting Deer and 20 Other Pesky Mammals," as his subtitle would suggest. He has provided a readable narrative spiced with over 400 of his photographs plus a great many more taken by his friends Lennie and Ushi Rue and others. The result is a feast for the eyes as well as a source of information for those seeking to protect their yards and gardens. Personal and other anecdotes enliven the antidotes against mammals ranging from armadillos and peccaries to voles and woodchucks. Chapter 23, really an appendix, not only profiles but also portrays 197 of the more than 1,000 deer-resistant plants discussed in the book, all in beautiful, living color. A multitude of maps shows which parts of the United States are home to the various varmints discussed in the narrative. Anyone the least bit disturbed by (or simply interested in) the animals discussed in this book will find it a great bargain at $23.95 US as well as a valuable source of information. (In the interest of self-disclosure, I should point out that I have called Neil a friend for more than 35 years and had a minuscule role in helping him with his research on pocket gophers, which he overgenerously recognized on pp. xi, 95, and 100, even going so far as to include a photograph of me and my wife on p. xii.)
