With wonder & a sense of humour, Nature Obscura author Kelly Brenner helps us rediscover our connection to the natural world that’s just outside our front door.
Through explorations of a rich, varied urban landscape, Brenner reveals complex micro-habitats, surprising nature found in the middle of a city. In her hometown Seattle, exposes a diverse range of strange, unknown creatures. From shore to wetland, forest to neighbourhood park, graveyard to backyard, Brenner uncovers how our land alterations have impacted nature through wildlife & plants that live alongside us, often unseen. Stories meld together in the same way our eco-systems, species, human history are inter-connected across an urban environment.
