What else is there to see on a walk through the woods? Splashes of color paint the forest's canvas through the seasons. Take a walk through the pages of this book, where the true colors of the Adirondack woodlands show themselves in beautiful and surprising ways.
About the Author
Liana Mahoney developed an early appreciation for the beauty of the forest. She spent much of her childhood flipping rocks and logs just for the thrill of finding spotted salamanders. Today, she lives with her husband and three children just outside the Adirondack Park, where the woodland is her backyard and her inspiration for writing children's poetry and non-fiction. When she's not writing, she's teaching young children, photographing luna moths, and rescuing turtles from the road. She still can't resist looking under rotting logs for flashes of living color.
