Sorryyy
I really enjoy this book! I plan on keeping it forever! Amazon was the only place I could find it because it is out of print. The used copy was what I expected. I paid $13 something for it. It did have some highlighting of random passages and a crease on the cover, but was well worth it overall. It is incredible all the environmental stories and essays this book has! It introduced me to some writers I have never heard of that I really enjoy! A must for nature lovers!
