Summary
"All of John Janovy's previous books deal with mixtures of nature, teaching, learning, and to a certain extent, a spiritualism that comes from time spent among the lesser inhabitants of our planet. Dunwoody Pond explores what is his most abiding passion: the molding of young people into scientists (with the invaluable help of a small, unimpressive pond)."--BOOK JACKET. "Dr. Janovy provides an exploration of the early experiences of some of his most successful students during critical life choices. This book, ostensibly about people studying insects, worms, frogs, and one-celled animals that inhabit a small pond in Nebraska, is actually a highly original and insightful meditation on the nature of science itself."--BOOK JACKET. "The scientific researcher is at heart a detective, constantly asking: "Why did this happen? Where did this come from?" Dunwoody Pond turns the microscope around and asks another question: "Where do young biologists come from?""--BOOK JACKET
