I read this in grade school and finally found it again after not remembering the title of it for 9 years. Needless to say I was ecstatic. I still need to read it again though, but I don't have to rush because I now own my very own copy of my favorite book.
The quote in the front of the book about the relationship between Mother Nature and mankind has stayed with me all these years.
