I liked how it was about people relating to nature even in places the most distanced from it, but the writing was somewhat a deal breaker for me. High quality teen essays are still teen essays and as a result a lot of them had that college-admission-essay feel to it that seemed strained.

Still an excellent collection though, even though I didn't appreciate it myself, and definitely worth checking out if you are interested in this sort of nature writing at all.
