Synopsis: An in-depth look at some of China's most impressive natural sites such as the ancient Han kingdom, the Mongol steppes, the Silk Road and the Tibetan Plateau.
Visually stunning presentation of th wild life and wild place of China.
Picked this book up as something to read on a recent trip and enjoyed the natural history and personal naturalist memoir.
At times it reads like Thoreau musing about the view out the window, yet in an urban setting.
A surprising amount of information is packed in this small volume.
We can learn much about human relations by observing crows and ravens.
In The Company of Crows and Ravens is comprehensive and illustrated with beautiful pen and ink drawings. I read this when it was first published in 2007 and was captivated by crows and ravens ever since. The Corvus genus are highly intelligent and one of most closely connected species to humans.
Great opening scene, filled with tension and a classic rant written by one of the best living writers today, Aaron Sorkin.
