"In these compassionate, quietly evocative essays, Mr. Finch makes an eloquent case for dealing with nature not just as an extension of ourselves but as a world apart." -- New York Times Book Review When Common Ground was first published, Annie Dillard praised Robert Finch's essays for "their strength, subtlety, and above all their geniality." New readers will have a chance to discover that Finch's Cape Cod is indeed a wonderful place. The birds, fish, and animals that share the cape's fragile ecology on any given summer day with the human residents are described with the fresh eye of a first-rate nature writer.

"Words From the Land spans the full range of the contemporary nature writing genre. In this expanded edition, Stephen Trimble adds five writers to the fifteen included in the original edition, including selections both from well-known masters and from vital new writers who focus on our relationship with the earth. A new preface brings his critical commentary up to date. In his fascinating introduction, and in biographical sketches of each contributor, Trimble illuminates the practice and spirit of this work, the fruit of 'the naturalist's trance'. Trimble explores how the writers learn their profession, how they meet day-by-day challenges, and how they feel about their craft. The interaction between the essays and the introduction provides an unusual perspective on these writers who connect the worlds of story and landscape."--Publisher's description.

From acclaimed author and naturalist Robert Finch, a richly detailed observance of Cape Cod's seemingly vanished natural and human past, as it clings to its present landscape. This is a voyage of discovery, a personal odyssey into the nature of a single Cape Cod neighborhood. It is a rich portrait, beautifully drawn, of a landscape and a community whose essential character lies in their penetrating interface with the sea. But it is also an individual quest, a journey of the heart and mind in which the author seeks "entrance, or rather re-entrance" into "that vast living maze stretching out beyond my lines of sight."
