Recensioner

This book has three distinct sections. First, a guide to observing nature. Second, as a logbook of nature sightings. Third, as a reference guide for birds, mammals, amphibians and reptiles, and fish.

I appreciated the geographic information in the reference section.

The physical book is pleasing with its soft flexible cover, metal-edged corners, and color-coded pages.

This was a good book to read. It had alot of interesting facts about all the different types of storms. It also gave an inside view from a scientist that studies tornadoes and storms.
