i really enjoyed this book! it made me want to visit central park so i can prowl around and meet some of the nature-lovers (and maybe see some hawks!). i'd recommend it if you like barbara kingsolver - marie winn has that same gift of teaching you about the natural world without you realizing it. a fun read.
