A Book of Hours

Donald Culross Peattie (author)

Twenty-four essays, one for each hour of the day, that seek to bridge the gap between natural science and organic beauty

One in a series of reissued books that have been out of print for decades, by one of the most loved naturalists of all time. A Book of Hours contains twenty-four essays, one for each hour of the day, that seek to bridge the gap between definitive scientific philosophy and the beauty that Donald Culross Peattie envisioned in everyday life. The Boston Transcript referred to this collection as “science, in sheer poetry,” and the Chicago Daily Tribune mused that “it leaves one a better man for having read it” and offers “the inevitableness of natural laws and the truth of beauty, if one cares to seek it.”
