Book Riot's 20 Must-Read Books for Nature Lovers

"A crucial part of any exceptional book is the setting. Fantasy authors pour their hearts into world-building. Historical fiction writers research meticulously to bring another place and time to life. Beyond the careful constructions, both tangible and civilized, of city life, lies the raw tenderness of the natural landscape. Poets have waxed eloquent about ponds and seas and winds and trees since time immemorial. From Homer's "wine-dark sea" to Jan Karon's "high, green hills," the feeling of connection to the earth under our feet will always be a treasure trove of artistic exploration. Whether you're an experienced free climber or rarely hike to your mailbox, if you crave more adventure and wilderness, start with these books for nature lovers."
