This book descibes the activities of a series of creatures living in a marsh at Jackson's Hole. Each chapter is devoted to a single animal. The author, Sally Carrighar, weaves these individual tales with a style that draws the reader in and makes them care about each animal. Yet, within this compelling style, the author maintains scientific accuracy and illustrates how each life is connected to other lives in the marsh; the individual lives forming an interdependent web of life. I first read this book in the late 1950's, yet on re-reading it... it is still one of the finest examples of nature writing. A pure delight to read and re-read.
