Nature Matrix is a gathering of some of Robert Michael Pyles most significant, original, and timely expressions of a life immersed in the natural world, in all its splendor, power, and peril

Nature Matrix: New and Selected Essays contains sixteen pieces thatencompass the philosophy, ethic, and aesthetic of Robert Michael Pyle.The essays range from Pyles experience as a young national park rangerin the Sierra Nevada to the streets of Manhattan; from the suburban jungle to thetangles of the written word; and from the phenomenon of Bigfoot to that of the BigYeara personal exercise in extreme birding and butterflying. They include deepprofiles of John Jacob Astor I and Vladimir Nabokov, as well as excursions into wild places with teachers, children, and writers.

The nature of real wilderness in modern times comes under Pyles lens, as doesreconsideration of his trademark concept, the extinction of experiencemaybe thegreatest threat of alienation from the living world that we face today.

Nature Matrix shows a way back toward possible integration with the world, as it plumbs the range and depth of experience in one lucky life lived in close connection to the physical earth and its denizens. This collection brings together the thoughts and hopes of one of our most widely read and respected natural philosophers as he seeks to summarize a life devoted to conservation.
