Coming into the Country. John McPhee. John McPhee is the writer to read if you want to study well crafted writing. His clarity of vision is unexcelled. His prose is lean and still richly descriptive. After reading a series of poorly written books it is enjoyable to come back to McPhee as reminder of what great writing is about.
Nature Field Guides
Eastern Forests (Audubon Society Nature Guides) by Ann Sutton, Myron Sutton. From the National Audubon Society. This is the book I carry with me when I am out looking for new trees to add to my Nature of Rochester Web pages. I give it high marks for ease of use and construction.
Wetlands (Audubon Society Nature Guides) by William A. Niering. A copy of this book has accompanied us on many a canoe trip and wetlands hike. Like Eastern Forests, this book is easy to use and holds up well in the field.
