Thornapples: The Comings, Goings, and Outdoor Doings of a Naturalist

Overview

Overview

Praise for Charles Fergus' writing "Fergus loves the woods without idolizing them. He recognizes natural mysteries without forever trying to draw a great philosophical lesson. More often than not, his essays turn on clearly narrated, concrete events, and they turn our expectations around like an O. Henry story." -Wallace Kaufman, American Forests For years, Charles Fergus chronicled his outdoor activities in the Pennsylvania Game News' popular "Thornapples" column and other magazines. Some of the best of his writings are now collected in this illustrated volume. Following a fox, gathering nuts, watching fireflies, tracking a bear, listening to peepers, hunting deer, searching for giant trees, camping alone-a year of adventures and rambles in the natural world, all described in vivid detail and filled with the timeless spirit of the great outdoors. Charles Fergus is the author of Wildlife of Pennsylvania (0-8117-2899-4) and a number of other books on nature and the outdoors, including A Rough-Shooting Dog, The Wingless Crow, Swamp Screamer, and Summer at Little Lava. He lives in central Pennsylvania.

    It's a great storybook! Charles Fergus explained what he saw about animals in Pennsylvania. For an example, he followed a fox to see what it was doing. This book is great for naturalists, outdoor lovers, or general readers!
