Reveling in the wonders of nature doesn’t have to be reserved for vacation. By simply taking a few minutes to look up and observe the hawks hovering over their nest at the top of a city building, or to look down and note the variety of weeds growing in a small patch of earth, or just to glance through the window and appreciate the shapes of the clouds moving by, anyone can connect with nature—anywhere, anytime. Clare Walker Leslie, author of the bestselling book Keeping a Nature Journal, has spent 25 years teaching and showing people how simple and rewarding it is to notice and record local nature. Nothing is more inspiring than the pages of her nature journals, which feature her daily recordings of small, but amazing natural events she’s seen while walking the dog, sitting in a park with her children, or driving around city streets. Drawn to Nature features a selection of Leslie’s journal pages, arranged to inspire the reader to do as she does: look up, look down, look out and around, bring bits of nature indoors to observe and study, or take your eyes for a walk around the neighborhood. Using a combination of quick, impressionistic watercolors with more detailed pen and pencil drawings, along with the written word, Leslie invites readers to share in the pleasure of her nature watching, and to experience the joy of seeing and connecting with nature wherever they live, amidst the whirl of daily life. For journal keepers, nature lovers, birdwatchers, artists, and anyone interested in using nature as a source for self-reflection or meditation, this book will be a welcome companion and source of inspiration.

While they are small in size, Miniature Pinschers are not lapdogs but athletic, driven canines who respond best to a firm but loving approach. Miniature Pinschers are delightfully entertaining companions, but the novice owner may need some extra guidance when raising this bold breed. They require regular training sessions and daily exercise or they can quickly become unruly, demanding, and manipulative. Learn everything that you need to know to raise your dog from a lively Pinscher pup to a curious and confident adult with a dignified air.
