An online resource based on the award-winning nature guide –


Cvr_NaturallyCurious_D2newtrimI’m delighted to announce that my latest book, Naturally Curious Day by Day, has just been released. Like Naturally Curious, it takes a look at species and events that are likely to be seen/occur throughout the year in the Northeast. However, my new book presents new photos and text in a day-by-day format, as opposed to month by month. Each day of the year has anywhere from 2 – 4 entries/photos on subjects as varied as slime mold, sapsuckers and salamanders. Readers of my blog will be familiar with some of the material, as the book contains edited/expanded versions of many of the past six and a half years of posts. The book also includes new entries, short essays and sidebars. A concerted effort was made not to duplicate information found in Naturally Curious.

Naturally Curious Day by Day can be purchased in bookstores and online. If your local bookstore doesn’t have it, they will be able to order it from Globe Pequot’s distributor. I’m hoping it will help those stumped by what to give someone for Christmas! 456 pages, 1,300+ photos. Thank you!

    Sounds wonderful. I’ll be sure to purchase a copy for someone who will use it as a reference in my own writings – ME. I put together photo journals of our adventures and have a hard time keeping the page amount down. Our Galapagos trip was 104 pages and now our trip to North Dakota is running almost 50 and I’m less than 1/2 way through. I’m impressed with how few pages you fit into a year. Good Luck with the sells.

    Dear Mary,
    I would like to purchase some of these books for Christmas gifts. Do you have a book signing?
    Regards, Frances

    • Hi Frances,
      I don’t know where you live, but yes, I have a book signing at the Norwich Bookstore in Norwich, VT next Saturday, 10/29 from 10 a.m. until noon, and I have one at the Montshire Museum on November 18th. Am in the middle of scheduling one at Mass. Audubon’s gift shop in Lincoln, MA. Hope to see you at one of them!

    Mary, any chance I can order three copies signed by you?

    A faithful reader and contributor,

    • Hi Brian,
      Yes, you can order from me, but I’m afraid I’ll have to charge postage (in addition to $29.95 & $1.80 tax per copy). If you email me at and send me your address and to whom you would like me to sign them, and mail a check made out to me to: 134 Densmore Hill Road, Windsor, VT 05089, I’d be happy to mail you three signed copies!
