FORMATS
Lyon makes a strong case for the literary values of the genre of nature writing by offering a mini-course on the American nature essay's development, an anthology of works by authors including Thoreau, Matthiessen and Lopez and an extensive, though incomplete, list of books for further reading. PW dubbed this an ``eminently worthwhile'' and ``splendid'' collection. Illustrated. (Feb.)
