Of Mice & Botflies

A white-footed mouse in the Brockport Woods confronts the world.
Chris Norment, Emeritus Professor of Environmental Science and Ecology, has published a creative nonfiction photo essay. The essay concerns “botflies, the white-footed mice they inhabit, and theodicy, with guest appearances by Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau.”

Of Mice and Botflies” was inspired by Dr. Norment’s twenty-eight years of research on white-footed mice in the Brockport Woods.
