A naturalist, photographer, illustrator, and a native of the area, Villani has spent almost a decade documenting Long Island's landscapes and native plants and animals (rather than the sprawl of paved highways and suburban development). The 140 color photos presented here are accompanied by substantial text discussing the distinctive features of Long Island's geology; the barrier islands; bays, lagoons, and salt marshes; hardwood forests and the Hempstead Plains; pine barrens; ponds, kettles, bogs, and swamps; and the rivers and streams. A map, places to visit, and a bibliography are appended, but there's no index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
