This book includes sixty-four essays on topics that include birds, mammals, insects, trees, shrubs, herbaceous plants, as well as topics such as the meaning of beauty in nature, plant succession over time, how plant communities work, and why it is important to know the names of plants.
The essays are 600-1200 words long and are written for the educated layman, not for specialists in botany or biology.
Every essay is illustrated by at least one photograph, taken by the author, who is an award-winning photographer.
