Product Description

Since its inception in 1915, the Best American series has become the premier annual showcase for the country's finest short fiction and nonfiction. For each volume, a series editor reads pieces from hundreds of periodicals, then selects between fifty and a hundred outstanding works. That selection is pared down to the twenty or so very best pieces by a guest editor who is widely recognized as a leading writer in his or her field. This unique system has helped make the Best American series the most respected--and most popular--of its kind.
This second annual Best American Science and Nature Writing volume, edited by Pulitzer Prize-winning author, scientist, and naturalist Edward O. Wilson, proves to be another fantastic collection. The volume highlights writing that ranges from the outer edges of scientific thinking to the inner life of a field biologist. Read about the remarkable and timely work for some of the best science and nature writers out there.
