Review:

Peter Tompkins, author of the New York Times number one bestseller The Secret Life of Plants, parallels the scientist's world of quarks and muons with the spiritualist's world of fairies and sprites in The Secret Life of Nature. There's more to nature than green leaves and twittering birds: it's a world that only the gifted and dedicated observer can see, using techniques of the mind that transcend the limits of the five senses, much as the scientist peers into the subatomic world with supercolliders and electron microscopes. Going beyond the boundaries of typical pro-environmental propaganda, The Secret Life of Nature is more than a plea to save the planet; it will change the way you see the world.

About the Author:

Peter Tompkins was the author of the number one New York Times bestseller The Secret Life of Plants. He also wrote books on the pyramids and other mysteries of the world, and was a World War II spy and a journalist. Tompkins passed away in January 2007.
