Media reviews
The 436-page book has something for everyone-birders, hikers, hunters, green activists, and local historians included... A handy introduction to some of the genre's luminaries-... Rachel Carson, Annie Dillard, Roger Tory Peterson, John Burroughs, Tom Horton, William Warner... If you're a local outdoors lover, you can't help but take pride in knowing that these nature-writing aces have done some of their finest reporting on this region... Read their selections and you'll not only be entertained, you'll have a clearer idea of the natural assets of this region-how they've been savored and squandered and rejuvenated and protected. -- Kevin McManus Washington Post This region of ours is a jewel. If there be any doubt, read these authors. Their voices will fuel not only many future journeys but also explorations of the mind... The readings brim with lyrical prose and memorable lines. -- Stan Shetler Audubon Naturalist News An extraordinary book that looks through time and space-and through changing perceptions-at the nature of the mid-Atlantic region... The book makes accessible a tremendous and eclectic range of fine regional writing-not only selections from lesser-known authors, but also lesser-known pieces of the many famous writers included.
