"The works in this annual anthology are lyrical, emotional, moving,
and insightful--proof that long-form science journalism boasts some
of our best writers...These pieces challenge us to look deeper and
to understand better, to see the beating human heart in the soul of
science."--Booklist, starred review
"Naturalist Montgomery emphasizes a sense of wide-eyed wonder in this enjoyable anthology. Readers in need of some substantive escapism will appreciate this offering of the previous year's finest science and nature writing."--Publishers Weekly
