Synopsis

Synopsis

These enormously popular volumes are the most engrossing and encyclopedic guides available. Combining easy-to-understand natural history, amusing trivia, thoughtful observations, and little-known folklore — about plants, animals, birds, fish, insects, reptiles, the day sky, the night sky, and the ground we walk on — Up North and Up North Again are indispensable companions for every cottager, camper, nature lover, and trivia buff.
