lilithcat: Henry Beston, whose book The Outermost House I recommended here, gave this one high praise. So do I.
spiphany: Not as well known today, but more representative of Carson's nature writing than Silent Spring

tardis: Field guides are a key way of enhancing one's knowledge and appreciation of nature. I love them.
kristilabrie: Yes it's a field guide—not sure if I'm bending the rules here—but I use this book so often, I LOVE birding and checking off new species in the back.
