    A must read for any nonfiction writer

    Don't let the nature title fool you. Murray does a great job of giving the creative nonfiction writer most of what he or she needs to produce a wide range of articles and books. With chapters like The Writing Process, Word Pictures, Language, Storytelling, even Fiction and Poetry, this is more than just a walk in the woods. I like this book because of its simplicity and clarity. It's not an exhaustive treatment. It's the kind of book the neophyte can read and apply immediately, while experienced writers will want to reread it a couple of times a year just to reorient their creative compasses.
