In his articles and in best-selling books such as The Botany of Desire, Michael Pollan has established himself as one of our most important and beloved writers on modern man's place in the natural world. A new literary classic, Second Nature has become a manifesto not just for gardeners but for environmentalists everywhere.

Chosen by the American Horticultural Society as one of the 75 greatest books ever written about gardening, Second Nature captures the rhythms of our everyday engagement with the outdoors in all its glory and exasperation. With chapters ranging from a reconsideration of the Great American Lawn, a dispatch from one man's war with a woodchuck, to an essay about the sexual politics of roses, Pollan has created a passionate and eloquent argument for reconceiving our relationship with nature.

    " What I learned from this book is that it's possible to find gardening interesting, to fantasize about gardening, and yet not actually be a gardener. "

    " An enjoyable book that believes roughly the same things I believe about the relationship between humanity, culture, and nature. In brief, nature, as a wilderness, is a non-existent entity. We, humankind and nature, are inexorably linked. Our goal should not be to stay out of each others' ways, but to cultivate a healthy coexistence. It's not spectacular, but reasonably thought provoking and sufficiently interesting. "

    " I really enjoyed Pollen's storytelling in this book. At times, it got boring, and at times, pretty self-absorbed (and pretty while male-absorbed). But there was something I liked from each chapter. And I'm sold on his general theme of using "gardening" as a more appropriate metaphor for humans' relationship to nature (and to each other) - well argued. "
