Two books that reveal natural and scientific secrets – Buffalo Spree

For local parents seeking family excursions, I recommend Secret Places in Western New York: 25 Scenic Hikes, a lovely reworking of the late Bruce Kershner’s 1994 book, Secret Places: A Guide to 25 Little Known Scenic Treasures of the New York’s Niagara-Allegheny Region, Including the Beautiful, the Bizarre. Jennifer Hillman and William McKeever’s new version is also enhanced with new photos by Courtney Grim.
