Words Without Borders is devoting the first of two issues of the online mag to nature writing, but don't expect to find any Wordsworths, Thoreaus, or Leopolds in this packet. It's not nature writing in the usual sense that the editors are after, but rather the confrontation between humans and their environment. Interesting stuff. From lyrical reports about life in unfamiliar territories, both hot and cold, to brooding accounts of the fever that nature puts into the mind and work of writers around the world."
