The Science Times Book of InsectsBook - 1998
With this book the Lyons Press inaugurates a new series of annual nature anthologies in partnership with the Nature Conservancy, dedicated to bringing readers the finest nature writing from the past and present. Each book will be devoted to a single environmental subject and will be composed of both classic selections and contemporary writings. In this first volume we celebrate rivers, from twenty-two writers as diverse as Barry Lopez and Rick Bass to Mark Twain and Ernest Hemingway, all sharing their visions of rivers throughout the world. Future volumes will explore writings about oceans, mountains, forests, endangered species, wetlands, lakes, deserts, grasslands, urban nature, and coasts.
