Nature Writings From North of the BorderBook - 1995
"This marvelous anthology gathers writers from the United States, Canada, and Europe to provide the best collection of North American nature writing ever put between covers. And by North, we really mean North - admittedly a vast canvas, but one covered splendidly by Wayne Grady, from Pehr Kalm's "Travels in North America" (1753) to Gretel Ehrlich's moving essay about her encounters with seals in the frozen wastelands of the Arctic Circle (1992). Included are pieces by well known and much beloved writers (Audubon, Seton, Mowat, Thoreau, Matthiessen, and Peterson among them), alongside lesser known texts by writers whose work will come as revelations."--BOOK JACKET.
