Two books every nature-love MUST read:
Nature Wars by Jim Sterba. An incredible look at how nature and man have encroached on one another.
The New Wild by Fred Pearce. I rarely recommend a book whose ebook cost more than $9.99. Get this one from the library if you can. Or wait for the price to drop. But DON’T miss it. This is hands-down the most eye-opening book on nature that I’ve ever read. You might cringe at the subtitle: Why Invasive Species Will Be Nature’s Salvation — but I challenge you to read the book and not come away convinced.
My favorite sort of read is the kind that opens my mind to new ideas. Both of these books did this. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
