"A miscellany that keeps you turning the pages."--Desmond Morris, author of "The Naked Ape"

A collection of anecdotes, facts, figures, folklore, and literature, "The Nature Magpie" is a treasure trove of humanity's thoughts about nature. Choose your side--pineapple or durian--in the great "king of fruits" debate and discover which plants can be used to predict the weather.

Meet the roadkill connoisseurs, learn to dance the Hippopotamus Polka, find out the likelihood of sharing your name with a hurricane . . .

Daniel Allen, PhD, is a British author making a name for himself in the world of nature writing.
