Mannahatta

I've just started reading Eric Sanderson's and Markley Boyer's Mannahatta: A Natural History of New York City. It seems worth the burden of adding a physical book to the physical bookshelf, but it's the kind of book that even the larger format Kindle can't really do justice to. Book is an outgrowth of the Wildlife Conservation Society's Mannahatta Project on the occasion of the 400th anniversary of Dutch settlement.
