Hill Country Naturalist

I assume that folks who read these columns are at least somewhat interested in Nature and our native habitat. If this describes you, then there are two brand-new books out that will interest you.

The first book is "Seasons at Selah: The Legacy of Bamberger Ranch Preserve." This book was so much anticipated that I put my name on a list to buy a copy even before the actual publication. Why was it so anticipated? Because of the subject involved and the people who made it happen.

The subject is J. David Bamberger and his legendary work to restore a worn-out ranch in Blanco County into the showcase Bamberger Ranch Preserve we see today, and to educate thousands of Texans on how to manage their land.
