Through his popular newspaper column, “Speaking of Nature,” and his 2001 book of the same title, professional naturalist Bill Danielson has introduced thousands of readers to the wonders and mystery of the natural world in New England and upstate New York. In Still Speaking of Nature, Danielson continues his observations of the nature, following the rhythm of the seasons in twenty-eight short essays that explore a diverse range of topics, from trilliums and katydids to meadow voles and moose. Taken together, they offer an engaging and accessible introduction to a fascinating world of nature that is often no farther away than our own backyards or neighborhood parks. “You cannot care for something you don’t know about,” Danielson writes, and whether you’re a layperson or an experienced naturalist, his entertaining combination of science and humor will inspire you to explore the natural world and your place in it.
