I have lived a few miles for Colliers Mills for 28 years and never knew anything about it. Reading this great book has opened my eyes. It is packed full of history, botany, and wildlife information. It list the trails and the wonders of this precious peice of land and makes the reader long to hike through nature as God created it. I loved the easy read and can't wait to see what this author comes up with next.
