The May Nature Book of the Month is The Entangled Life- How Fungi Make our Worlds, Change our minds, and Shape our Future, by Merlin Sheldrake. It is reviewed by Sue Deadman, probably our best all round naturalist . It can be found under activities.
The June Nature Book of the Month is Under a White Sky; The Nature of the Future, by Elizabeth Kolbert. It is reviewed and enjoyed by Heather Ewing, an avid reader and very active in the Orillia Naturalists’ Club.
The July Nature Book of the Month is Underland by Robert Macfarlane. It is reviewed By Mark Bisset, Executive Director of the Couchiching Conservancy.
The November Nature Book of the Month is Jungle Peace by William Beebe. It is reviewed by Nancy Ironside. It was published in 1918, in a different era, but full of adventure and natural history. I loved reading it.
We hope someone will offer to review a book they are reading.
Happy Reading everyone!
