The Book of Forest and Thicket starts where other nature guides end: once you know a plant's name, you want to learn how it grows, why it prefers a certain habitat, and which animals depend on it for food and shelter. Every tree, every shrub, and every wildflower are part of a fascinating community whose members include birds, mammals, insects, fungi, and other plants.

This exquisitely illustrated book explores the complex world of woodlands and brushy edges. In nontechnical language, John Eastman explains the intricate biological webs that connect all forms of wildlife, from the canopies of towering oaks to the clubmoss underfoot.

John Eastman has written for many natural history publications, including Bird Watcher's Digest, Natural History, and National Wildlife. Illustrator Amelia Hansen's work has appeared in wildlife publications and art exhibitions.
