Here are some books due out in the next few months which I'm looking forward to reading. Tell me which interests you most and answer the other goofy poll questions as well if you like.
Operation Bite Back: Rod Coronado's War To Save American Wilderness by Dean Kuipers (June 23rd)
Hero or terrorist? Sinker of whaling ships, burner of buildings, releaser of animals, saboteur of hunts--a man who acted on his beliefs.
Wild Marsh: Four Seasons At Home In Montana by Rick Bass (July 1st)
An account of a year of natural events in the remote Yaak Valley by a solid writer, not quite in my highest level of favorites, but probably at the top of the second.
Letters To A Young Madman by Paul Gruchow (either July 10th or September 7th)
Before his suicide in 2004, this Minnesota nature writer had been working on this collection of writings about his mental illness and hospitalization experiences.
Great Chain Of Life by Joseph Wood Krutch (August 1st)
Republication of Krutch's 1956 (my birth year) book. "Whether anticipating the arguments of biologists who now ascribe high levels of cognition to the so-called lower animals, recognizing the importance of nature for a well-lived life, or seeing nature as an elaborately interconnected, interdependent network, Krutch’s seminal work contains lessons just as resonant today as they were when the book was first written."
Following The Water: A Hydromancer's Notebooks By David M. Carroll (August 12th)
One of my favorite writer/artists, winner of a MacArthur genius grant, writes of the events in a wetland from thaw to freeze up.
