Only 2 left in stock (more on the way). Although a studious naturalist, Logsdon writes with a breezy simplicity that complements his book’s humor, spicy characters, and unceasing wonder over the innumerable ways in which ponds and the lives bound up with them can inspire us to question ourselves, consider our ethics, and care more deeply for our world. His light but expert touch is frankly refreshing in overturning theories of pond management that don’t work in practice. The Pond Lovers is a disarming book.

The Pond Lovers is Logsdon's ode to the watery microcosms all around us, from the half-acre farm pond to the suburban garden pool. Readers looking for hands-on experience will find plenty of pond-keeping dos and don'ts. Logsdon's higher purpose, however, is to proclaim the natural, spiritual, and recreational benefits of ponds. Fed by spring or filled by rainfall, the ponds closest to Logsdon's heart need minimal human interference in the way of machinery or chemicals.

Those who love Gene Logsdon's work will definitely want to add this book to their library. Along with his usual contrary take on proper pond building methods, he conveys the beauty, diversity, and endless joy generated by a small pond of water. If you've not read Mr. Logsdon, then this is a wonderful introduction to his work. Anyone who has enjoyed dangling their toes off a dock, frog hunting in the cattails, or fishing on a sunny spring day will appreciate this book.

I was hoping for more detailed info about building and maintaining a pond. This was more nostalgia and a few good pointers.

Excellent.

I ordered this book as a supplement to several other books that are geared towards landscaping design, specifically with ponds in mind. Had I realized it was more a romance novel with some story telling about building ponds I would have passed it up. It is unfortunately such a book and has no real benefit to anyone contemplating building a quiet body of water on their land. It was only a few bucks new so nothing that killed me, although I wish I had spent that money on something else.

I thought this presentation was a nice balance between providing information regarding the creation and upkeep of a country pond and the value of ponds in the lives of real people. I took a few notes as I read to guide me through the process of adding a pond to our land in the Midwest. I also enjoyed the vision the author shared of the contribution a pond can make to the physical and emotional well-being of those who live nearby.
