The best environmental writing

You can find Orion Magazine in the Periodicals Department on the second floor of the Downtown Library. It combines outstanding journalism, astute commentary and a measure of hope about the politics, science and current state of the environment. It manages to be inspiring, cutting edge, beautiful and provocative at the same time. If Orion Magazine has a list of favorite books on environmental themes from 2012, you can bet they are worth a look. Look here for that list. Then, the editorial staff of Orion picks the very best, and issues the Orion Book Awards for the year.

This year the winner is:
Apocalyptic Planet: Field Guide to the Everending Earth by Craig Childs
The four runners-up are:
Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingslover
Things That Are: Essays by Amy Leach
The Old Ways: A Journey on Foot by Robert Macfarlane
The Mountain and the Fathers by Joe Wilkins
