. From Reviewers:
"A delicious, rich, fascinating melange of descriptive natural history, science, lore and romance by an intellectual who struggles with 'whither Mother Earth?'. Not a gulpable book - should be savored in sips." "He describes beautifully his passion for his environment with facts and humor! A thoroughly enjoyable read!" .
