"Very early one morning, on Lake Logan, Ohio, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), covertly slaughtered the entire population of Mute Swans on that lake. ... The author hopes this book will help open up some dialogue and stop the extermination of the Mute Swan in Ohio and many other states where this is also happening."

Nature's Way: The Mute Swans of Lake Logan, Ohio by Bud Simpson
LOGAN, Ohio - Feb. 23, 2016 - PRLog -- Local columnist and nature photographer, Bud Simpson, has written a book, "Nature's Way: The Mute Swans of Lake Logan", as part of a series of photographic nature books highlighting the natural world of southeastern Ohio. This particular book asks many questions: Why this slaughter of these swans? What are the reasons? Are the reasons truly valid, or are they based on misinformation and deliberate demonizing of the Mute Swan? Why won't ODNR meet face to face with the public and explain these reasons? Why is there a gag order on the wildlife officers and naturalists when a member of the public asks for reasons for this carnage?

This book is set in the beautiful Hocking Hills area of southeastern Ohio. It contains more than a hundred color photographs of the Mute Swans in question. This area is a Mecca for Ohioans and out of state tourists to visit. There are caves, hills, woods, thriving tourist cabins, hotels, motels, restaurants, fishing and hunting, nature and wildlife for all to enjoy. One of the attractions was seeing the Mute Swans who have raised their families on Lake Logan for more than fifteen years. Why this sudden extirpation of a popular attraction to the hills?

Bud Simpson, a transplanted Ohioan from Maine, has been a columnist for the Logan Daily News for more than a dozen years. He has also published seven books, including four novels. He is, besides being a writer, a photographer, an artist in various media, a sculptor in bronze, and a bird carver. He has spent many years in his native state of Maine and in Ohio photographing and observing the wildlife of Maine and the Hocking Hills.

Bud Simpson's new book Nature's Way: The Mute Swans of Lake Logan, Ohio is available on Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1622493028.
