Favorite natural history books?

Many of the podcasts connect to natural history in one way or another. I was curious for those that enjoy natural history what are y’all’s favorite books? Preferably something that focuses on a specific clade, geological era or even down to a specific river or species.

I enjoy the “Roadside Geology of Texas” when we take a long car trip. Many other states have their own version as well. It is neat to learn about what you see in road cuts and roadside formations as you drive along.


Having recently read the magnificent epic The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert, I’m inspired to read The Origin of Species.

Otherwise, formative in my youth; Animal Societies by Remy Chauvin, In The Shadow of Man by Jane Goodall, The Lives of a Cell: Notes of a Biology Watcher by Lewis Thomas.
