This book, published by the Virginia Native Plant Society, is a fantastic collection of about 200 short articles on the wildlife and wild habitats of Virginia. Each article is about 2 pages long, making it a great book to pick up and put down while gaining a feast of information. The articles are written in a very conversational style, as if you were sitting down with a friend.
Because John Trott was a local resident, the information in this book really hits home as we learn about the animals and plants, their behaviors and their lives, right here in Loudoun. The articles were originally printed under the column “All Things Wild and Wonderful” in the Loudoun Times Mirror, Fauquier Times-Democrat and Clark Times-Courier.
We selected this book for our summer book club meeting. Read any articles that interest you and then join us for a short discussion of the interesting facts and insights we each picked up.
With so much great information, local to our area, this book is definitely a must for any Virginia naturalist’s collection.
