Her spirited exploration of earth and water, flora and fauna will open your eyes to new views of nature's wonders.
"Cloud formations and sunsets get our attention, as do volcanoes -- the showy, dramatic phenomena of our planet. In Nature Anatomy: The Curious Parts and Pieces of the Natural World, published at the end of January, Julia Rothman also pays attention to the ecosystem of a rotting log, or the vast lattice of white threads, known as mycellium, that branch out from mushrooms underground, rendered in delicate, hand-drawn illustration." PBS NewsHour
"A loving celebration of sunsets and salamanders, ferns and feathers, mountains and mushrooms, and the whole enchanting aliveness in between." Brain Pickings
