Wild Life: The Remarkable Lives Of Ordinary Animals collects favorite nature essays originally published in Ed's long-running newspaper column, "All Things Natural." Here you'll find tales of a blackpoll warbler that flies far farther and with much less fanfare than Amelia Earhart, of a tiny forest wren that sings like Pavarotti, and of the evolution of snakes, some of which retain vestigial legs ("A Farewell To Arms").
"Kanze speaks with several voices: that of the professional naturalist full of accurate information and scientific observations; the skilled writer with a grand sense of humor; the storyteller with a sense of drama; and the adult who has the capacity to view the world through the eyes of a curious child."---Charlotte Seidenberg, book reviewer, Times-Picayune (New Orleans)
