Editorial Reviews

Review

There are other publications that deal with urban ecology, but no other work looks at one -place, a very urban place, and helps the reader to understand all facets of how people connect to or find nature in that city. . . Highly recommended. (―Choice)

“Still the Same Hawk is an eclectic mix of writing ranging from solid academic prose to highly personalized writing with tones ranging from folksy to almost urban contemporary.” (―Mark L. Botton Fordham University)

John has gathered some of the best thinkers and most interesting voices in the city for this eclectic volume of essays on the under-appreciated New York City environment. Recommended for eco-hipsters in Brooklyn, nature lovers in the Bronx, bird watchers in Manhattan, conservationists in Queens, gardeners in Staten Island and everyone else who loves New York and wants to see it last. (―Eric Sanderson Wildlife Conservation Society)

Waldman deserves credit for compiling the first approachable attempt at deconstructing the idea of nature in the context of New York. Every big American city should have a similar collection of essays to call its own. (―Philip Silva, The Nature of Cities) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

He is recipient of the New York Society Library Award in Natural History and the Norcross Wildlife Conservation Award and is an occasional contributor to the New York Times and other periodicals. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
