For anyone who loves the outdoors, Paddling with a Naturalist offers an opportunity to gain a strong sense of the forces behind, and the interconnectedness of the natural world. It will allow you to better understand what makes nature function, and to appreciate why the things you see from your canoe are the way they are. To see nature as a biologist does.

Readable and entertaining, Paddling with a Naturalist is written like a travelogue. Follow Brett through creeks and lakes, and along the portage trail, to find that at the end of your journey you have come to understand the forces that make our beautiful natural world possible. Bring it along on your next canoe trip and see nature through different eyes.
