- This event has passed.
We respect wolves, hawks and bobcats, love songbirds and lilies, and are moved by a sunset observed through pine boughs, but we do not care for poison ivy or winged ants. We ignore lichens even though we see them growing on trees everywhere, and we may not even know the names of other things that occupy our world: ventifacts, grape ferns, and club mosses. This book will awaken the reader to events and things tuned out and forgotten in the noisy, rushing environment of our lives. It is a safari to nearby places.
