Other pieces feature Sue Hubbell on millipedes, Sy Montgomery on emus, Bernd Heimrich on birds' eggs, Roger Swain on frogs. Scott Russell Sanders takes us canoeing in the wilderness, and Lawrence Joseph offers a proposal for solving the problem of overpopulation. Singly and collectively, this is a sparkling compendium.
