Nature Obscura A City’s Hidden Natural World by Kelly Brenner

Kelly Brenner brings to vivid life not only a series of microhistories found (sometimes literally) in her backyard, but her own naturalist’s fascination for all life great and (especially) small, from crows gathering at dusk to moon snails by the sea, from basement spiders to slime molds in the woods to flies all around. Brenner enthusiastically invites anyone whose childhood involved collecting bugs or who spend weekends at wilderness identification courses to join her mini expeditions—and forge their own.

Ackerman once again uses her engaging prose to shine a light on the startling ways in which birds are very much like us. Her lyrical and informative depiction of “the bird way” is the most delightful, inspiring, and exciting book I’ve read in ages.
