Wilderness Essays



A beloved classic reissued for contemporary readers.

This series celebrates the tradition of literary naturalists, writers who embrace the natural world as the setting for some of our most euphoric and serious experiences. These books map the intimate connections between the human and the natural world. Literary naturalists transcend political boundaries, social concerns, and historical milieus; they speak for what Henry Beston called the ‘other nations’ of the planet. Their message acquires more weight and urgency as wild places become increasingly scarce.
