Books Info:

The Nature Reader free pdf *One of the best books of nature writing around* "Our lives spent in rooms, our imaginations and outlooks framed by windows - by concepts, logic, language - most of us continue to think of nature as a place to visit, wearing sunscreen and suitable protective clothing. Visitors in the museum of the great outdoors" This delightful anthology features pieces by some of the best authors of the 20th century, such as Italo Calvino. John Fowles, Bruce Chatwin, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Richard Ford, Cormac McCarthy, and many more. A vivid and wide-ranging collection, it addresses its mammoth subject with wit, originality and wisdom. In a time where man's relationship to nature is so warped that we often do not know where the food we eat has come from, or even, sometimes, what it is, this is a joyful and intelligent re-examination of our place in the natural world.
