AUTHOR

Outside Magazine Editors, Abbey, Edward, Bryant, Mark

SUMMARY

Celebrating 20 years in publication, the editors of Outside magazine glean here 31 of the best pieces that have appeared in its pages. This book glitters with the prose of writers such as Edward Abbey, Thomas McGuane, E. Annie Proulx, and Jane Smiley. Each essay concerns the writer's encounters and interactions with nature. Abbey shares a 1984 experience in the Alaskan wilderness in "The Last Pork Chop." Ian Frazier writes of how he and two friends pondered the problem of removing plastic bags from the tops of trees in New York City. Having devised a solution, they debagged the city and headed west for the Mississippi (where the floods of 1993 had left a devastating trail of debris in the treetops) and began their quest for "Keeping America's Trees Safe from Small Curd Bubble Wrap." Highly recommended for public libraries and academic libraries with browsing collections. Sandra Knowles, Univ. of South Carolina Sch. of MedicineOutside Magazine Editors is the author of 'Best of Outside The First 20 Years', published 1998 under ISBN 9780375703133 and ISBN 0375703136.
