I have always enjoyed John McPhee's essays and I found myself liking these as much as any I have read by him. The topics varied widely, from bears to Bill Bradley to alternative energy sources. They all held my interest and there were a couple of subjects that I wish he had written more about.

And that brings me to my only problem - these essays were all from the early 1980's. Some felt very dated. That is not a bad thing, just one of the problems with writing essays on topics of current concern. Eventually, these subjects are not something we might care about.
