Notes From the Field:  great writers and adventurers on life outside. Ed. Nora Gallagher. 1999 

From Rick Bass, Tom Brokaw, Thomas McGuane, Paul Theroux, and Alice Waters to a bunch of writers unknown to me but widely published in outdoor/surfing/hiking magazines; from Tonga to Alaska and the Tetons to the Amazon, 50 outdoorsmen and women write about harrowing adventures in the world of nature. Great photographs and some very good essays. It’s enough to keep me indoors for a very long time.
