By example as well as with words, they teach us to turn from the self to the world, fromaegoatoaecos.In these deeply felt meditative essays, Sherman Paul contemplates the cosmological homecoming of nature writers who show us how to reenter the world, participate in it, and recover respect for it.InaFor Love of the WorldaSherman Paul considers Thoreau, John Muir, and Aldo Leopold, major writers in the American tradition of nature writing- Henry Beston and Loren Eiseley, writers not yet so canonical- and Richard Nelson and Barry Lopez, our estimable contemporaries.Pauls meditative mode follows the practice of naturalists who enter the field, come into the open, and relate their immediate experiences.

In the most primary and direct way, his essays belong to our moment in history when nothing is more essential than our reattachment to earthly existence. They will reawaken our love of the worldOCothe necessaryaerosaofaecosOCoand our wonder at and gratitude for being.
