I will admit that I had found a free copy of this Handbook of Nature Study on the internet but I had mixed feelings about carrying the iPad in the woods. So I decided to see if I could get a copy of the book through Cornell University Press. I had not heard back from them and I was debating between purchasing it as a hardcopy from amazon.ca. Imagine my surprise one day when I received a package and I had no clue whatsoever what was in it. I opened the envelop and right then and there I realized that it was my copy of the Handbook of Nature Study. Since it's arrival, I am devouring the chapter called "The Teaching of Nature-Study" and I love it.
The book is quite thick - more than 887 pages. But it is packed with information about everything you can find in nature; birds, fishes, amphibians, reptiles, mammals, insects,plants, rocks and minerals, soil, climate and weather, skies and more. There is something for everyone in this marvelous jewel - hum I mean book. For me this book is indeed a jewel in itself as it is opening numerous opportunities to our family. You see we love to camp and we do explore our campground but having this book will help to go on a scavenger hunt and discover the woods a bit more.Read more ›

This is a good book, just wish the page numbers corresponded with the actual book as I needed this to line up with a home school Curriculum.Published 4 months ago by Colleen
The book may be great, but without colourful illustrations, it doesn't do a lot of good to identify anything. I was very disappointed when I received this book.Published 5 months ago by Kimberley M de Jong
I know it's a copy of an old book -love that. But I do wish they would re-do the pictures in colour. It's hard to see the details sometimes.Published 8 months ago by Paula
