    Amazing! And a lot of fun. Hell, you might even learn something.

    Of his books that i have read(3) each one was as much about the story and the language as about our natural ecology. From "A Year in the Maine Woods" I learned a simple recipe for bread that I still use today (15 years

    An astounding account of how animals survive the harshness of winter. Bernd writes ever so artfully as well as scientifically.

    Understanding how birds animals and insects survive winter
    Is just the beginning of this book. A delight for anyone who enjoys the outdoors.

    Reaches beyond winter

    I read this fascinating, informative book this past winter but now that is spring I find myself referring back to it: What was that again about those bird's nests... Let me review about beavers. .. Gosh that was amazing about bears in their dens... I am looking forward to reading more by this author.

    Personal & engaging, a new way to think and observe

    The depth of Heinrich's observations is so engaging and personal that he helped me share the empathy that he has for each of the creatures he describes. His awe at the scope and variety of evolutionary adaptation is something I will try to take with me every time I go out into forest and field. These things will open my heart and my eyes wider so I can understand more.

    A fascinating and insightful look at the life around us

    This is a marvelous book for anyone who wants to learn more about nature. It is a biology class that you want to attend. Where was this teacher when I was in college? I am ready to pack my bags and move to a cabin in Maine!

    Simply Inspirational

    Anyone who hikes in the winter cannot help but marvel at how animals survive! This answers that question in a compelling manner. It inspires one to go out into the tundra and simply be awed.

    And we call ourselves the intelligent species! The ingenious adaptations to habitat portrayed by these creatures, the astonishing physiological changes actuated by so many others, it is mind boggling! Great seasonal read for those of us who must resort to the match for winter survival.
