From Our Editors

Designed to be read over the course of a year, this book brings readers closer to nature. A Year on the Wild Side is humorous, satirical and full of cultural history. It compares great blue herons to Dr. Suess characters, and explores what red-tide dinoflagellates have in common with Mick Jagger. This beautifully illustrated volume helps readers learn more about the animals around them.
