From Laurel Hill to Siler’s Bog; Terres, John
From Laurel Hill to Siler’s Bog, originally published in 1969, present the fruits of a scientific as well as affectionate association between a dedicated naturalist and the birds, mammals, and insects of small, wild world. John Terres, noted author and former editor-in-chief of Audubon magazine, spent nine years exploring the Mason Farm Biological Reserve in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. His observations of the animal and plant life around him are eloquently recorded here, organized around the cycle of a year from January through December. In an afterword written for this edition, Terres reflects on his return to the Mason Farm after twenty-five years and the changes that have taken place there.
