The Irreverent Naturalist

The Irreverent Naturalist

Nature sure is weird. And she bats last.


Bay Area Wildlife: An Irreverent Guide is now available for pre-order from Heyday Books!

Jeff Miller has written an irreverent and somewhat salacious guide to watchable wildlife in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. It’s a practical critter-finding guide, as well as a love offering to the nature and wildlife of the region, and commentary on the diminishment of biological diversity. The book is an antidote to dry nature guides and scholarly ecology papers, and hopefully inspiration to protect Bay Area wildlife habitat and open spaces. And it’s beautifully illustrated by California-centric artist, poet, and eco-philosopher Obi Kaufmann.

Bay Area Wildlife: An Irreverent Guide will be published November 12. You can pre-order on the Heyday website – - click on “Buy from Bookshop”
