Description

In his articles and in bestselling books such as "The Botany of Desire," Michael Pollan has established himself as one of our most important and beloved writers on modern man's place in the natural world. A new literary classic, "Second Nature" has become a manifesto not just for gardeners but for environmentalists everywhere. Chosen by the American Horticultural Society as one of the seventy-five greatest books ever written about gardening, "Second Nature" captures the rhythms of our everyday engagement with the outdoors in all its glory and exasperation. With chapters ranging from a reconsideration of the Great American Lawn, a dispatch from one man's war with a woodchuck, to an essay about the sexual politics of roses, Pollan has created a passionate and eloquent argument for reconceiving our relationship with nature.

"Second Nature" reads like brilliant entertainment, but it is serious wisdom. Michael Pollan is a genuine heir to my favorite nature writer, Mark Twain. Simon Schama, "The Boston Globe"
