PENELOPE BASS

Powell's City of Books

It’s not often we pause to observe the majestic raccoon feasting on garbage as a representative of the wild. But in her most recent book, nature writer Lyanda Lynn Haupt began looking toward the “everyday wild” within our cities, pondering where our civilization ends and nature begins. The book, The Urban Bestiary: Encountering the Everyday Wild, is a blend of science, myth and memoir about our daily interactions with nature.
