Overview

For 37-plus years, celebrated nature writer Hal Borland penned over 1,700 natural history "outdoor editorial" essays for the Sunday edition of The New York Times. The original articles entranced readers with vivid and inspiring depictions of the natural world beyond the big city. Or, as Borland himself wrote with characteristic humility, they were "a weekly report on what's going on up country."
Released posthumously in 1979, Twelve Moons of the Year contains a selection of 365 of Borland's best short pieces, hand-picked by the author and his wife, Barbara Dodge Borland. Organized almost like an almanac following the seasons of the Native American lunar calendar, each dated entry represents one day of the year and conveys an observation or morsel of fundamental wisdom about the natural world and the great outdoors. With his welcome wit and friendly style, Borland conveys the spirit and essence of each changing season and its special moons. The book sparkles with small and large observational gems. Find out why Borland has been beloved by readers for generations.
