[In Wild Season] Eckert uses the same technique, a fictional approach, as that used in his two previous nature books, The Great Auk (1963) and The Silent Sky (1965). In this book he avoids the pitfall of expressing too much sympathy for the more helpless creatures and too little for the predators…. One of the finest sections of the book is Eckert's presentation of a few days of a bull snake's life and its tragic death at the hands of the worst predator—man. The book is recommended … as a nonscientific but accurate and very readable account of the ecology of a typical wildlife habitat.
