Great for kids, too, but heck -- I'm an adult, and I sure learned about my environs.. "A Great Introduction to the Area" according to Dan GR. I picked up this book not knowing entirely what to expect. The title to me seemed just like one of the current trend of very specific, scientific titles for novels. However, the book is exactly what it purports to be--a guide to the natural history of Cape Ann and the surrounding area. I found the book to be very well-writ. "Science through Art" according to Sarah P. Bennett. Kristina's book allowed me to sit in my living room and explore many of my favorite haunts on the North Shore.
