Pulitzer Prize finalist author David Mark Haskell, a professor of biology whose previous Songs of Trees won the John Burroughs Medal for Outstanding Nature Writing, is out with a new book that glories in the abundant sounds of nature. The Kirkus-starred Sounds Wild and Broken celebrates sonic marvels ranging from the songs of whales to the trills of tree crickets. Science writer Juli Berwald’s Booklist-starred Life on the Rocks focuses on ocean wonders—specifically the majestic coral reefs that many are fighting to save against very long odds.
