Daubert, author and scientist, provides a follow-up to his very popular Threads from the Web of Life with this collection of 26 stories on a variety of natural phenomena, wildlife, and survival in the wild. The stories should be considered creative non-fiction. While it's highly unlikely that any of us will accompany a yearling peregrine falcon on its hazardous yearling migration, but the author gives us everything we need to know to imagine the long, arduous flight. The stories concluded with science notes on their subjects. The book also includes a list of Web sites that expand on many of its topics.
