The Camosun Bog has existed for 2000 years, but, like wetlands everywhere, it has been encroached on by an expanding urban landscape. In The Eco-Diary of Kiran Singer, Sue Ann Alderson chronicles one child's encounter with the bog and the Crazy Boggers who are working to protect and restore it. Full of humor and gentle irony, this is an intimate, child's eye view of the natural world. The book is a warning but it is also a celebration of life and of our potential to make a difference.
“Kiran insightfully and beautifully records her observations of nature.”
