From Booklist:
Gr. 4-8. In her fifth anthology highlighting American ecoregions, St. Antoine celebrates the distinctive literature that conveys a community's cultural and natural history. Selections include Susan Powers' essay about the dangers of swimming in choppy Lake Michigan waters; Gene Stratton-Porter's recollections of collecting wildflowers in quicksand-filled bogs; Aldo Leopold's musings about the great variety of wildlife attracted to the diseased trees in his Wisconsin forest; and Canadian Margaret Atwood's ode to the effort involved in preparing homemade apple jelly. Most selections are brief and illustrated with small sketches. Each work is prefaced by a note about the setting and closes with a short biographical comment about the contributor. Excellent examples for creative writing classes or for combined literature-geography projects. A helpful appendix further explains the area's predominant habitats, flora, and fauna. Kay Weisman
