From Our Editors

Bedichek created a work that chronicles what was in the Hill Country of Texas during a single year of his musing and literary stock-gathering. But, beyond the work's simple value as data-load, the book stands to enrich us with the clear passion of itself.

Editorial Reviews

A classic since its first publication in 1947, Adventures with a Texas Naturalist distills a lifetime of patient observations of the natural world. This reprint contains a new introduction by noted nature writer Rick Bass."I wish some such book opening windows on the ground I belong to and arousing healthy curiosity about all things both great and small had been available when I, as a boy, always got books—good books—for Christmas. It is the kind of book that enlarges experience whether remembered or yet to come. It is a book to open eyes." - J. Frank Dobie
