Notes "Wildbranch...is a powerful collection of essays and poetry by both prominent American environmental writers and exciting new voices. The work of more than fifty contributors offers the reader glimpses into places as diverse as a forest in West Africa, the moors of Ireland, the canyons of the Sonoran Desert mountains, and the fields of New England, and they reflect the varied perspectives of field biologists, hunters, farmers, environmental educators, wilderness guides, academics, writers, and artists. The collection is an intimate portrait of the natural world drawn through the wisdom, ecological consciousness, and open hearts of these exceptional contributors." (page 4 of cover)
