Sounds from The Great Animal Orchestra (Enhanced): Waterby Bernie Krause
Selected excerpts (23 pages) from The Great Animal Orchestra-enhanced with nine rare audio clips from the author's collection: recordings of wildlife on Volcano Arenal in Costa Rica and in Yellowstone National Park, the changes in biophony as glaciers melt, the stark differences in sound among rainforests, deserts, and open tundra, temperature-telling crickets, and the dawn chorus of the site of the Chernobyl disaster.
Bernie Krause is one of the world's experts in natural sound.

This e-short focuses on heat-related sounds.

I have always loved the sounds of nature. I spend a lot of time outdoors, and I even have sound machines that can be set on "thunder" or " rain," etc. These books are the REAL DEAL! Even my parakeet is astonished! He flew immediately to my NOOK and even now is looking all around for the birds that he is CERTAIN reside in this little rectangular devise. And, not surprisingly, the written information is fascinating. BRAVO!!!
This is great. However, I have to put in my earbuds to hear it well on my nook tablet. The audio on the nook sucks, but with earphones its great. I love the way the sounds and their meaning is written in this book. DM
Like zen beautiful.....written.......the book is a work of art sound in itself.
