A book for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the natural world.

Editorial Reviews

A Field Guide to the Familiar goes far beyond the scope of any nature guide I've read. It's not just a means of identifying and understanding the characteristics of dozens of roadside birds, flowers, trees, and animals, but an unabashed celebration of them. It's a celebration, if you will of the ordinary in nature, which often turns out to be a good deal less ordinary than I, for one, ever supposed . . . Who, exactly can benefit from A Field Guide to the Familiar? Anyone interested in our everyday natural surroundings: country dwellers, city dwellers, teachers and students (the book will be an excellent supplementary text for life science and biology classes), professional naturalists and backyard bird watchers.
