BeschreibungAs a naturalist and biologist, Sue Leaf traces the natural history of her small Midwestern community, offering rich details about the people who settled the area, about its once prosperous farms, and about the oak trees and wildflowers and prairie animals native to this part of the country. By examining remnants of the past still visible in a place deeply affected by sprawl, Leaf reveals how to slow down, look carefully, and untangle the jumble of unnoticed clues that can enrich our daily lives.
