I liked "Standing in the Light: My Life as a Pantheist", "Lasso the Wind",
But am open to other suggestions. Read many of the 'classics'.
Sand County Almanac, Tinker Creek, Walden, Etc.


Don't really care for Edward Abbey's writing style, though I appreciate what he stood for.

He might not be considered a nature writer by all, but Bill Bryson's A Walk in the Woods is definitely worth a read and has a lot about nature on and around the Appalachian Trail.

When I was a kid I read Negley Farson. Turned out much later that my father-in-law used to know him!

You guys may be able to help jog my memory: There was a Canadian author in the 1950s whose wife was, what is the Canadian PC term for Indian, a First Nations woman? I think the author himself may also have been a Canadian Indian. He wrote a book about how they moved out into their ancestral wilderness, built their own log cabin, and lived off the land. It even had B&W photos in it. I used to love that book, but I haven't seen it in a long time. Any idea who the author may have been?
