About this book

Man's fascination with the natural world is at least as old as stone-age cave painting, and this anthology demonstrates the vividness with which writers have recorded their observations of the world around them since ancient times. Contributors include Aristotle, John Clare, Gilbert White, Charles Darwin, George Orwell, and John Fowles.
