i can finally say something

Maine’s natural community classification has been published!

3000 copies arrived two weeks ago, but we’ve been figuring out distribution, etc.
bookdelivery (1) bookdelivery (19)
97 boxes went from the delivery truck, one hand truck load at a time by our staff, to sit on our second floor hall. They are flying out of the office, and they haven’t even hit bookstores or libraries yet (but they will).

I was totally like a kid at Christmas the day they were delivered, and it’s been hard to stay quiet!

Though I’m not an author, I worked to get a super techie draft document into an attractive and approachable book that a lay person with some interest in natural communities (i.e., the different types of forests, wetlands, open areas) might like to have. We hired a layout guy who did an absolutely fabulous job. It’s printed on triple-certified recycled paper. It has a ton of great photos. I have to re-do some things on the website, but you can see samples of the community descriptions from this page, but be sure to click on the downloadable pdf once you go to a description… that’s where you’ll see a bit of what the book is like.

And now, for some totally dorky botanical nonsense,
