Summary
"A unique illustrated guide for everyone who loves picking up shells on the beach or finding a trove of colorful feathers. Celebrating the wonders of the physical world and the joys of being an amateur naturalist and collector, 'Cabinet of Curiosities' explains how to identity, find, collect, and preserve leaves, butterflies, the skulls of wild animals, quills, snake skins, and snake rattles - and make a cabinet of curiosities to display your specimens. But more than that, it also explains the workings of the natural world, from how honeybees live in a hive to how volcanic rock and thunder eggs are formed. Organized according to the Linnaeus System, it's a perfect introduction to natural history - and inspiration to stay curious."--Back cover
