Heralds of Spring in Texas

by Wauer, Roland


"It is a basic part of human nature to anticipate a new cycle of growth in our natural world and to recall fond memories of earlier springs. But the signals of spring are varied and personal. They differ from one person to the next and often are very special to the beholder."—from the Introduction to Heralds of Spring in Texas

We know by the calendar when spring officially begins, but how does nature tell us spring has come? In Heralds of Spring in Texas, Roland H. Wauer walks us through Texas, from the Rio Grande to the Panhandle, as spring arrives. In addition to offering us his own special memories of spring in Texas, Wauer brings together the thoughts of other Texas naturalists, professional and avocational, and augments both with background information about the particular herald being considered. Harbingers of spring explored include birds, trees, flowers, mammals, even the night sky. All those who love outdoor Texas will relish this delightful celebration of spring and enjoy the artwork of Ralph Scott, who has done an illustration of each spring herald.
