    First let me say that I m a huge fan of James Michener s writing This book is a collection of chapters from other books that are only related in that their topic is nature From geological processes to conjectures about prehistoric animals to modern animal tales from the wild and the backyard, the excerpts don t really hang together as a cohesive unit The pace is somewhat uneven, but since I m a fan, reading excerpts helped me determine which novels to read Chesapeake, The Covenant, and maybe First let me say that I m a huge fan of James Michener s writing This book is a collection of chapters from other books that are only related in that their topic is nature From geological processes to conjectures about prehistoric animals to modern animal tales from the wild and the backyard, the excerpts don t really hang together as a cohesive unit The pace is somewhat uneven, but since I m a fan, reading excerpts helped me determine which novels to read Chesapeake, The Covenant, and maybe Texas and which to avoid Centennial.The very thing that makes Michener excellent at writing about people is a detriment to his writing about animals He anthropomorphize...

    I d like to think that this book is the result of some unscrupulous editor and that Michener had little to do with it It is nothing but a money ploy, repackaging selections from Michener s other books The one original...
