In Writing Wild, Kathryn Aalto - the bestselling author of The Natural World of Winnie-the-Pooh - explores the important work of 25 women whose nature writing shapes the way we read the landscape. Starting with Dorothy Wordsworth, whose writing was a huge influence on her more famous brother William, and progressing through current names both familiar and not, Aalto profiles a diverse mix of women whose contributions to the world of nature writing have left an indelible mark. Featured writers include Gene Stratton-Porter, Mary Austin, Gretel Ehrlich, Lauret Savoy, Kathleen Jamie, Carolyn Finney, and more. Writing Wild is a rebuke of the traditional, all-male lineup. But more importantly, it's a celebration of beautiful writing, the nature it captures, and the legacy it left or is still shaping.
