In this anthology Lee Gutkind brings together writers who have connected to nature and learned that it is inextricably attached to us. In "Against Nature," Joyce Carol Oates explains why writers generally resist nature as a topic while at the same time commenting on her place in the surrounding world. Diane Ackerman swims with a Right Whale and her calf in "The Moon by Whale Light," and sees how the whales treat her with the same respect with which she treats them.

On Nature also includes essays by Mark Doty, Gretel Ehrlich, Louise Erdrich, Barry Lopez, Vaclav Havel, Bill Bryson, John McPhee and others, all of whom share their poignant, intimate connections to the natural world.
