Grounded in ornithology and botany, informed by classical mythology and the experience of women, and based on the premise that human beings are intimately connected to the landscapes in which they live and work, this classic of American nature writing challenges readers to appreciate the land on a local, personal, and familiar level. Reprint edition.
'The Friendship of Nature' will be prized by writers, scholars, and activists seeking to identify more closely with their own, often far from 'pristine,' landscapes and to dig in and take responsibility for them. It enriches our exploration of the ways in which individual human narratives reflect the deeper narratives of geology, climate, migrations, and forest history. This newly framed classic represents an important contribution to literature and environmental thought alike.--John Elder, Stewart Professor of English and Environmental Studies, Middlebury College
