Here at Just Write Books, we love reviews. Getting opinions on our books from people who know their stuff stimulates engagement and helps our writers in their future endeavors. When we get a review as glowing as the one Wild Critters of Maine got from George Smith, writer of all things Maine outdoors, it's a nice reminder that we're in the right business. George, former executive director of the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine, writes for numerous outlets, including his own website, georgesmithmaine.com, and centralmaine.com, where you'll find this review.
So writes George, "Tom starts with our mammals, from moose to rabbits and gray squirrels. The next section is about fowl, including turkeys, ducks, and lots of other birds. Then he moves on to fish, from brook trout and bass to crayfish. And then Tom surprised me with a section on crawly things from June bugs to dragonflies. I had no idea he knew so much about bugs! And he actually has a section on his favorite insects."
"Tom Seymour knows more about Maine wildlife than anyone in our state, and his new book, 'Wild Critters of Maine: Everyday Encounters,' published by Just Write Books in Topsham, is a real treasure of both information about our wild critters and very entertaining stories about Tom’s encounters with them."
Opinions are always welcome, and kind words are always heartening to read, but when those words are from someone educated on the subject at hand, it's all the better.
