These essays describe childhood memories, everyday walks transformed into life-changing events, being in the grip of a great force, startling encounters with wild animals and even one fantasy. They are funny, sad, reflective, optimistic, nostalgic, exciting, pessimistic and outlandish. Each one presents a singular experience of enlightenment, awe, passion, outrage, sadness or exhilaration. All are beautifully written and powerfully felt. Contributors to this Collection include: Diane Ackerman, Margaret Atwood, Rick Bass, Sharon Butala, Wade Davis, Robert Drewe, Timothy Findley, Richard Flanagan, Bill McKibben, Jennifer Potter, Beth Powning, David Quammen, David Reynolds, David Adams Richards, and David Suzuki.
