A beautifully illustrated natural history book describing the plants and animals that live about the location of avifauna. It discusses the wonderful ways in which plants and animals are adapted to life in their particular habitats, and emphasizes the importance of protecting those habitats.


“One way to become more knowledgeable about the natural world is to have a special place, visit it regularly, and watch and listen carefully. You will then understand the importance of preserving that habitat and protecting the living things that are a part of it.” (The Old Place, Merritt Gibson, 1997).
