More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
With subjects and backgrounds that range from a treacherous hike in the Grand Canyon to a frog chorus in a central Louisiana marshy woodland, this invigorating collection (the seventh from series editor and founder Murray) offers examples of nature writing at its best, drawn from books, periodicals and unpublished work. This time around, all the contributors are women. Lisa Couturier writes about drawing inspiration from observing crows' strong family bonds from her stone house on the Potomac River in Maryland. Trudy Dittmar's beautiful, Hemingway-esque essay on encounters with moose in Wyoming probes that unpredictable, fiercely blustering, idiosyncratic creature. Colorado poet Pattiann Rogers describes having an epiphany after witnessing the death of an injured snake, hit by a car. And, in her delightful "The Queen and I," Seattle environmentalist Adrienne Ross enlists a beekeeper's help to rid her house of a bee invasion without calling in the exterminator. Some of the book's strongest selections voice ecological concerns: Marybeth Holleman reports firsthand on the ongoing damage to communities and to wildlife hurt by the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill; Kate Boyes profiles a disillusioned Utah desert town "saved" by a Faustian pact (U.S. military provided jobs but used the town's environs as a toxic dump); and Carol Ann Bassett braves the rapids of Chile's wild B o-B o River as she mingles with the ancient Mapuche Indians, whose traditional culture is being threatened by a hydroelectric dam project. There are two grating pieces about hunting--including one by a Buddhist meditator--but, overall, this is a strong and worthy compilation. (Mar.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
Library Journal
This, the seventh annual volume of the "American Nature Writing" series founded and edited by Murray, is the first of the series to limit the content to women writers. The 20 short pieces cover a wide variety of nature topics and experiences and include ten previously unpublished works and four selections from works in progress. Some of the authors are already firmly ensconced in the genre, but the pieces penned by emerging writers also exhibit a high level of creativity and skill. Nature is not the primary focus in many of the pieces but is instead used as a backdrop or as a metaphor for human experience and feeling. Most of the stories use nature topics as starting points to explore broader issues. Although not essential to environmental collections, this book is highly recommended for academic libraries supporting graduate-level creative writing programs and larger public libraries.--Angela M. Weiler, SUNY at Morrisville Lib. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
