On to love it Oh man I loved this book so much Especially Pertinent To Me Because to me because s talking about things I see very day in the Bay Area He answers those curiosities you didn t ven know you had but had probably registered below the surface I did want to know why pigeon s feet are all messed up I did want to know why there are so many crows around my neighborhood It s refreshing to be a bit curious about the things I see very day and see them in a new light This was a pure pleasure read for meThe author is a writer usually about food and cooking who lives in California with a young daughter whom he wants to teach an appreciation of nature Except he lives in the city and what he s really after is teaching her to notice detailsIt was really interesting to pick this one up on the heels of The Geography of Thought How Asians and Westerners Think Differently and Why which mentions the different ways the Westerners and Easteners raise their children Westerners are always naming objects for their children Right on cue that does happen here but then there is a push to go deeper Tree isn t good nough Suirrel isn t Good Enough Which Is enough Which is to go deeper Tree isn t good nough Suirrel isn t good Unseen City enough Which is maybe little Eastern but not totally Well Easteners might ask How does the suirrel feel. Nail The narrative allows us toavesdrop on the comically frenetic life of a suirrel and peer deep into the past with a ginkgo biloba tree Each of these organisms has something uniue to tell us about our neighborhoods and chapter by chapter Unseen City takes us on a journey that is part nature lesson and part love letter to the world’s urban jungles With the right perspective a walk to the subway can be Art every bit asntrancing as a walk through a national par.
