    1. A field guide that focuses on actual things you will actually see in New England forests. It doesn't try to cover everything but the more common animals and plants that you will see on a walk through the woods. The book is lavishly illustrated with color photographs and descriptions of the plants and animals. I have seen many of the plants and animals in the book and can now put a name to the species. Excellent book for the amateur.

    3. This definitely makes it onto my favorite books shelf. Not a traditional guidebook, Naturally Curious is more like Tom Wessels's Reading the Forested Landscape, in that both treat nature as an ecological system, rather than parcelling out information piecemeal on different species. Unlike Wessels's book, though, Holland's is full of gorgeous glossy pictures of plants, animals, fungi, tracks and scat, habitats, and scenes. It is a pleasure merely to look at, much less read. The plan of the book i [...]


    4. I've been reading this book off an on for about a year now and will now leave it in a handy place because I will no doubt want to reference it regularly. The book is full of great natural history observations for anyone living in the glaciated northeast of North America. I think the author is based in Vermont so the focus of the book is the seasonal changes in natural phenomena that occur in New England. It covers the life histories of a wide range of organisms from plants to salamanders to foxe [...]


    5. Bookseller: LindaIf you are curious, you may have a multitude of field guides and other related books, as I do. But you may want to add this compact, illustrated book as your first source.Mary Holland may answer many of your questions - as you turn to the month, fast facts, or the closer looks section.This is a reference book but certainly one to browse through as the different seasons approach.Included inside is a bibliography and scientific name list. Nature is always changing and we should be [...]


    6. I loved this book! The suthor does a great job through words and photos of introducing us to the animals and plants living all around us. Every wonder what animal made tracks across your snowy yard? Mary Holland probably has the answer to your question.



    7. I am so happy that I finally got this most excellent book for Christmas this year (2012)! I no longer have to hoard it from my public library!


    8. Wonderfully done. Beautiful photos! The text is worth reading as well (not always true of books in this genre). Highly recommend this one. I took my time reading it and savored the experience.
