Most widely held works by Frank Stewart
A natural history of nature writing by Frank Stewart( Book )
4 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 746 libraries worldwide
In Western society we feel neither entirely at one with our fellow creatures, nor entirely separate. Over the years, nature writers have struggled, in memorable language, with this feeling of "in-betweeness." A Natural History of Nature Writing shows us how this genre combines the rigors of science with the beauty of art to make our minds and our hearts whole. The book offers a penetrating overview of the origins and development of this uniquely American literature. Essayist and poet Frank Stewart describes in rich and compelling prose the lives and works of the most prominent American nature writers of the 19th and 20th centuries

A World between waves ( Book )
3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 186 libraries worldwide
"A World Between Waves brilliantly evokes the stunning beauty of America's own tropical paradise. These essays on the natural history of Hawaii by some of America's most renowned writers constitute both a literary celebration of the wonders of the islands and a passionate call to action on behalf of what may soon be gone." "From the "discovery" of the islands by Captain James Cook and the early naturalists who wrote of their treasures to contemporary scientists and observers, these essays capture the history and magnificence of a land that is part of and yet separate from the United States, at once familiar and exotic. This book is a testament to the biological and geological wealth of this unique and threatened island landscape." "A World Between Waves brings to life Hawaii's magnificent islands and seas, forests and volcanoes. For travelers and armchair travelers alike, it is a compelling and inspirational tour guide."--Jacket

Other oceans by Wayne Levin( Book )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 82 libraries worldwide
"Millions of people visit aquariums each year. These showplaces are invaluable educational tools and, more importantly, provide a window into a mysterious world that few of us will ever experience firsthand. But that world is increasingly threatened by human misuse - by pollution, over-fishing, global warming. Accompanying the waste and devastation is a global trend toward building bigger, more fantastic aquariums. Marvels of architecture and engineering, these artificial oceans seem to be our way of preserving the sea even as we destroy it." "The duotone photographs presented in Other Oceans are the result of visits to fourteen aquariums in the United States and Japan and diving trips off the coasts of California (including Santa Barbara Island), Hawai'i, and Midway Atoll."--Jacket
