Fantastic Starred PW review for Lyanda Lynn Haupt's The Urban Bestiary

September 17, 2013

Lyanda Lynn Haupt's just-published The Urban Bestiary: Encountering the Everyday Wild (Little, Brown) grabbed a great starred review from this week's Publishers Weekly:

In this sparkling follow-up to Crow Planet, Haupt returns to the urban wilds, this time familiarizing the reader with the wildlife ecology within their own backyards. From the ubiquitous squirrel, to the seldom seen coyote, or the subterranean mole, Haupt seeks to demystify the lives of the animals that commonly surround us, even in the most urban and seemingly unnatural settings... Packed with information yet conversation in style, this nature memoir invites backyard birdwatchers and amateur naturalists to take a moment to be still, observant, and to discover that the wild world really does extend into our own lives, and even still today, we are too a part of that wild.
