Description: From Library Journal
Lyons (Great and Peculiar Beauty: A Utah Reader) reflects on the 12 years since the first edition of this guide to note the growth and maturation of the field of nature writing. While this edition does not include the anthology presented in the first edition, it retains the taxonomy and the annotated bibliography, which form the bulk of the text, as well as a chronology of our nation's treatment of the environment. The bibliography spans the 19th and 20th centuries; the annotations guide one to the scientific content and the flavor of the titles. Also included is a beautifully written essay on the taxonomy some might call it a history of nature writing. Unfortunately, there are no illustrations, which would only have added to the book's appeal. Any public or academic library without the first edition should own the second.
