Summary
In the tradition of naturalist Loren Eisley, a molecular scientist (at the U. of California, Davis) presents 16 creative nonfiction stories from a holistic view of the natural world. Stories offer insights into ecological processes linking plants, animals, geologic formations, climate, and humans. Scientific notes and recent references follow each tale, complemented by brother Chris Daubert's (Sacramento City College) art images blending fact with conjecture.
