260 indexed pages. An excellent sampling of a literature which has always had a wide appeal. Starting with Aesop and Aristotle and ending with a piece written just a decade ago by Primo Levi, there is something here for everyone.In this superb anthology, with its rich variety of sources from Europe and America, Richard Mabey charts the development of nature writing from the fabulous imaginings of the medieval bestiaries to the scientific accuracy and philosophical concerns of present day naturalists. It is both an inspirational and essential read, illustrating the diversity and beauty that has existed around us since ancient times. This book is intended for anyone interested in natural history, in nature writing, animals and plants, ecologists, conservationists and present-day naturalists. Extracts by writers as varied as the naturalist Gilbert White, poets and novelists such as Coleridge and Orwell, and scientists from Linnaeus to Lewis Thomas, illustrate the diversity and beauty which exists, and which must he encouraged to thrive, in the natural world.
