KIRKUS REVIEW

A fat, topically organized omnium-gatherum which includes everything from poems by Whittier, Frost, and Mark Van Doren to essays by John Muir, Rachel Carson, Norbert Wiener, William O. Douglas, and John Stuart Mill to a passage from Smollett's Humphrey Clinker to an 1850 editorial from the Milledgeville (Georgia) Federal Union to snippets from Twain, Jefferson, Plato, and probably, if you look hard enough, the first person to say he couldn't see the forest for the trees.
