About The Book
When I come upon an animals tracks in the woods, I find myself moving back against the animals direction to trace where it started from, Ted Levin writes in Backtracking: The Way of a Naturalist, He also traces his own development as a naturalist from his boyhood roots on suburban Long Island to his present life in northern New England. Along the way he introduces us to all sorts of wild creaturesfrom red-backed salamanders, cicadas, and rattlesnakes to manatees, coyotes, and bald eagles.
Although he lives in northern New England, Ted sometimes travels far in his search for a variety of wildlife. The lure of Floridas Everglades calls him every winter with its legions of tropical birds and animals. One fall he travels north to Canadas Machais Seal Island to observe puffins and razorbill auks and is attacked by Arctic terns. Later he gets stranded on Bonaventure Island where he ends up sleeping on top of a colony of Leachs storm petrels to be awakened by the birds nocturnal cooings.
Ted Levins involvement is different than most outdoor naturalists. He lives with wild creaturesat one time or another, a fisher, a short-tailed weasel, barred owls, milk snakes, and brown batsas well as observes them in the wild. Often, the wild turns out to be an interstate highway, a crowded beach, or a parking lot. He shows us how accessible the natural world is, that we need look no further than our own backyards to find it.
