This acclaimed series, the leading showcase for contemporary nature writing, marks the new century and the new millennium with a special volume devoted to the writings of women. The sixteen contributors to the book include three generations of women writers, both new and distinguished voices. The selections gathered here show American nature writing to be a vital and diverse genre, one that encompasses a range of themes: from the solace of wild places to the ferocity of nature, from the importance of urban green spaces to the need to protect the last of our wilderness areas. In the words of editor John Murray, today's most gifted women writers "demonstrate the ability of women to move and change the world through the force of their words and the clarity of their vision."
