About this book

In sixteen essays, naturalist Stephen Lyn Bales ventures far and wide among the richly diverse flora and fauna of his native Tennessee Valley. Whether describing the pivotal role the hedge plant Osage orange played in a key Civil War battle or the political firestorm that attended the discovery of a tiny fish dubbed the snail darter, Bales illuminates the complicated relationships between humans and their neighbors in the natural world.
