I'm a dodo-brained poli sci major, a career military guy with no training in silviculture, zoology, climatology, or geology. I'm just an enthusiastic canoeist, hiker, fisherman, and admirer of the Canadian/Alaskan forests. The writer speaks to people like me perfectly- a really entertaining account of animals, weather, geology and forest interacting in an amazingly huge and 'unpeopled' wilderness.
For info, if you've got a kid at the high school level who needs to do a paper/report on species interacting in ecologies, this book has about 25 stories each with its own theme about the miraculous adaptations. I.E.- one of the best was about the ten year population cycles of rabbits, and how its predators and food react to these cycles.
Entertaining and educational. A great reminder that whether you believe in Creation or Evolution or some mix of the two, ecologies are amazingly complicated and genius!
