December 28 - Bolen Books

Another visit to Bolen's, for two more volumes, one a book I'd ordered and one a book I'd had my eye on:
  • David Gessner, Sick of Nature ($22.50), and
  • Mark Leiren-Young, The Green Chain: Nothing Is Ever Clear-Cut ($19.95).
You can get an excellent taste for the flavour of Gessner's book from an abbreviated version of the cover essay that first appeared five years ago in the Boston Globe, and Leiren-Young's is a collection of interviews from his terrific podcast series "Trees and Us" on The Tyee. I'm really enjoying Gessner's book already, having failed to resist dipping into it, and I plan on liking Leiren-Young's as well, since I've appreciated the podcast versions of the interviews.
