I love reading stories about nature. Here's a list of some of my favorites from this genre. The links take you to my review of each.







The Genius of Birds by Jennifer Ackerman





H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald




High Tide in Tucson by Barbara Kingsolver

Small Wonder by Barbara Kingsolver



Lab Girl by Hope Jahren

Wilderness Essays by John Muir





Walden by Henry David Thoreau





What wonderful true nature stories have I missed? 
Have you read any of these?
Which have you loved?





Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each Tuesday That Artsy Reader Girl assigns a topic and then post her top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join her and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.

  1. I love this topic! I have to confess that I haven't heard of most of these, but I am really happy to see a few Barbara Kingsolvers on your list - I enjoy her writing and Animal, Vegetable, Mineral was one I enjoyed immensely. I really want to read Lab Girl; I've heard nothing but praise for it!

    1. These are such great reads, whether one loves nature or not. Though probably these would be enjoyed a bit more by nature lovers. Barbara Kingsolver is fabulous.

  3. Forest Bathing sounds like such a good read. Honestly, I like reading just about anything related to nature.

    1. Forest Bathing is a delight. And it has elements of the spiritual as well as nature.

  5. Great list! I love Walden. And The Big Year is a great read, too. There are several other books on your list that I'd like to try, especially A Weird and Wild Beauty and Desert Solitude. :)

  6. How kind of you to make this list! I am not in the habit of reading nature stories, but recently I did read One Wild Bird at a Time by Bernd Heinrich and it was captivating. It made me notice H is for Hawk on your list and recognize it as another book in my Audible library, a few more hours to get through, but it sounds like it would be time well spent.

    I will spend time looking into the other titles. My nature-loving, science-minded grandson who soon will be ten years old might enjoy one of these.

  8. I enjoyed the movie of The Big Year so I'll bet the book was good as well.
