Eight years ago,Harpers Magazineeditor Michael Pollan bought an old Connecticut dairy farm. He planted a garden and attempted to follow Thoreaus example: do not impose your will upon the wilderness, the woodchucks, or the weeds. That ethic did not, of course, work. But neither did pesticides or firebombing the woodchuck burrow. So Michael Pollan began to think about the troubled borders between nature and contemporary life. The result is a funny, profound, and beautifully written book in the finest tradition of American nature writing. It inspires thoughts on the war of the roses; sex and class conflict in the garden; virtuous composting; the American lawn; seed catalogs, and the politics of planting a tree. A blend of meditation, autobiography, and social history,Second Natureis ultimately a modernWalden: a true classic for our time.
