About the Author:

Tom Brown, Jr. began to learn hunting and tracking at the age of eight under the tutelage of an Apache elder, medicine man, and scout in Toms River, New Jersey, and is the author of 16 books on nature. He was the technical advisor on The Hunted, a major motion picture starring Tommy Lee Jones and Benecio Del Toro.  In 1978, Tom founded the Tracker School in the New Jersey Pine Barrens where he offers more than 25 classes about wilderness survival and environmental protection.

From Publishers Weekly:

Brown, the author of many nature books, discusses familiar wilderness areas but pays most attention to suburban and city "wildernesses." These include abandoned lots, drainage ditches, hedgerows and, particularly, the lawn. This last, he states, actually is "a sea of life more complicated and intricate than any of our larger realms. . . . It is constantly awash in the motion of life, a grand provider of food, always a source of wonder and beauty." Interspersed with his examinations of habitats are descriptions of specific creatures to observe. He notes, for example, that the shrew has a breathing rate of 850 times a minute and eats three to four times its body weight daily, explaining its need to beand its reputation asan efficient, voracious hunter. Brown remains an enthusiastic, infectious observer of nature who will help readers notice more of the world around them. Illustrations not seen by PW.
