Wedding the Wild Particular

Robert Benson

"I taught undergraduates for forty-five years (the last thirty at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee), and for most of those years I spent as much time as possible outside.  I hunted as much as I could, and I fished some.  I also spent time in the woods of Tennessee, Alabama, and Mississippi just walking around looking at things that caught my eye and trying to understand.  Outdoor life and academic life for me have been intimately connected, and this collection of essays explores that connection.  The essays in Wedding the Wild Particular make plain the sheer delight I have taken in the primary world and the degree to which that delight has enriched my academic vocation.  They make what I believe is a coherent argument for the importance of natural literacy in the intellectual life." --Robert Benson

   
ROBERT BENSON taught undergraduates for forty-five years and recently retired from the University of the South.  He divides his time between Sewanee and the Alabama Gulf Coast.
