What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
Anyone interested in nature will relish this evocative and informative book.--Timothy P. Spira, Clemson University

This book captured my attention immediately with the sleep patterns (or lack thereof) of animals and plants. I remained captivated by all the intricacies of nature and how interdependent we are with all species on this earth. As I look at my orchids, I know now why I have such difficulty growing them. Thanks for this wonderful insight into Mother Nature.--Katherine Skinner, North Carolina Nature Conservancy
