The Lay of the Land
by Dallas Lore Sharp
A series of nature sketches, whose topics range from muskrats building for winter to buzzards nesting in the swamp, written in a way that encourages in the reader the habit of close observation. That the substance for most of the essays comes from personal observation of a small tract of land over a number of years illustrates how much can be discovered through regular observation in all seasons. In the final chapter he urges readers to adopt a similar practice.  Ages 12-18
