The Other Island

Exploring the Other Island: A Seasonal Guide to Nature on Long Island

John Turner, one of New York’s most knowledgeable and eloquent naturalists, has produced a new edition, greatly expanded and thoroughly updated of his classic nature guide.

With more than 80 photos by leading nature photographers and 24 line drawings by artist Maria T. Hoffman, the new edition offers a rich experience of the “Other” Long Island—the one far removed from the malls and highways, developments and office parks. It’s remarkable that so much of the natural world remains to explore in this limited space that is also home to nearly eight million people (as well the native fauna Turner so affectionately describes).
