From Library Journal
Nothing is commonplace about nature-even in your own backyard. It is full of sex, violence, intrigue, and mystery. Montgomery, a regular guest on National Public Radio's Living on Earth and author of Search for the Golden Moon Bear (reviewed above), offers 49 essays that examine nature in New England, from carnivorous plants to birds that impale their prey to the wonders of migration. The pieces, most of which were first published in Montgomery's Boston Globe column, "Nature's Journal," are short and entertaining, aimed at catching the reader's eye. But this is not simply popular science. Montgomery cites fascinating studies and quotes scientists searching for answers to these natural mysteries. Although most of the essays discuss a particular animal or plant, some explore habitats, such as vernal ponds, or the microscopic life among sand grains. Others explain events such as bird irruptions, the effects of a sparse acorn year, and what happens to bugs during the winter. Everyone will learn something new from these delightful essays. Highly recommended for public libraries.
