In Reading the Trail, ecocritic and outdoorsman Cory Lewis proposes a new way to read and interpret the classic works of these major nature writers and to bring their ideas into the discussion of ecological values and viable responses to the current environmental crisis. He combines a discussion of their work and ideas with an account of his own trail experiences as a hiker/backpacker and volunteer trail builder, proposing that such a field-based, interdisciplinary approach to literary study and outdoors experience can enrich our appreciation for the work of nature writers and for the purpose and importance of the environmental movement."--BOOK JACKET."
