This collection of quotations has been assembled by one nature lover for another -- you. You will truly appreciate this book if you are someone who feels, as Rousseau says, the 'life' of nature's spectacle; if you are one to whom the birds, frogs and trees are more kin than objects designed for your entertainment or profit. The collection is fairly comprehensive, but is not meant to be a reference work. It is one person's carefully selected handful of stones, not all the stones on the beach.
