The Oxford Book of Nature Writing

Edited by Richard Mabey.

Oxford, New York, Oxford University Press, 1995

“Containing a wide variety of nature writing from Europe and America, this anthology illustrates the common ground that exists despite the differences in national tradition and historical fashion, and the changing scientific perspective over the centuries. A willingness to admit both the kindredness and the otherness of the natural world characterizes these writings: it is a source of metaphor, of inspiration, and a yardstick against which we measure ourselves as a species.”
