Nature Obscura Published!
Nature Obscura is officially published today! This is my first book and I’m beyond excited it’s now out in the wild and already landing in the hands of people who have pre-ordered it.
Order a copy from your local bookshops to help support them during this challenging time.
Through explorations of a rich and varied urban landscape, Brenner reveals the complex micro-habitats and surprising nature found in the middle of a city. In her hometown of Seattle, which has plowed down hills, cut through the land to connect fresh- and saltwater, and paved over much of the rest, she exposes a diverse range of strange and unknown creatures. From shore to wetland, forest to neighborhood park, and graveyard to backyard, Brenner uncovers how our land alterations have impacted nature, for good and bad, through the wildlife and plants that live alongside us, often unseen. These stories meld together, in the same way our ecosystems, species, and human history are interconnected across the urban environment.
There is much more information about Nature Obscura on my website, including reviews and links to order.
