My Favorite Books about Natural History
I was recently invited to submit a reading list to the new website Shepherd.com – a site that aims to connect authors and readers through personally curated “Best Of” lists. Rather than go with art technique or inspiration, I decided to share my favorite recent reads on natural history topics. Nature is endlessly fascinating, and so many authors have inspired me with their words, from providing deep dives into the specifics of a single organism (Other Minds by Peter Godfrey-Smith) to life histories of influential figures in natural history (Chrysalis: Maria Sibylla Merian and the Secrets of Metamorphosis by Kim Todd). You can read my full list, along with a few blurbs about why love these books, HERE.
