David George Haskell - The Forest Unseen

Take a small patch in a Tennessee forest, visit it almost daily for a year, record what you see. In the hands of David George Haskell, a professor of biology and a poet, this idea turns into a beautiful and original account of change in nature. Haskell starts with simple observations and uses them to illustrate the lifecycles of forest inhabitants and complex relationships that exist among them. The book is rich in detail, but never dry and boring. Forest Unseen is a true naturalist’s journal and a meditation on nature by a thoughtful and engaging writer.
