2017 Odyssey Bookshop Holiday NEwsletter


Two acclaimed professors of Natural Science and Biology from Bowdoin College and University of Vermont have compiled an observation guide and a five year calendar-journal that will delight and teach those of us who love to get outdoors but would like to understand more about what we see and follow the yearly changes. This book has wonderful colorful illustrations by Bernd Heinrich and the authors are donating 100% of their royalties to nonprofit conservation and environmental education organizations. I don’t make many New Year’s resolutions, but in 2018 I resolve to use this book and start the first year of my calendar-journal.  ~Joan

This is the first book with a comprehensive data-driven portrait of how animals navigate their world. For centuries, we've tracking animals by following footprints, smells and other clues in the physical world. Now we have satellites, drones, camera traps, cell phones and accelerometers that reveal the natural world unlike ever before. With four-color charts and maps, the authors tell the stories of animal behavior - from warblers to baboons, from storks to pythons and many more. This is sure to please your favorite naturalist. ~Mark
