Description

This chronicle of life in the author's 300-acre Maine forest is equal parts love story, companion guide, and biological reference. Each of the 24 essays explores a different aspect of the forest, from the white pines in mortal combat for life-giving light to the sophisticated colonies of ants who wage wars, take slaves, and herd aphids. Some make accessible such complicated ideas as the genetic makeup of plant life, the secret life of fungi, and the notion of sex in trees. Appendix A politely raises the important issues of logging, pesticides, and tree plantations. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
