The inspiring classic on the virtues of embracing the great outdoors from the national bestselling author of The Dog Who Came to Stay.   Over the course of his career, Hal Borland wrote eight nature books and hundreds of "outdoor editorials" for the Sunday New York Times, extolling the virtues of the countryside. From his home on one hundred acres in rural Connecticut, Borland wrote of the natural wonders, both big and small, that surrounded him every day. Beyond Your Doorstep is his guide to venturing into the outdoors around your home, wherever it is, and discovering the countryside within reach. The beauty to be found in roadsides, meadows, woodlands, and bogs are explored in elegant prose. Borland takes up birds, animals, and plants--both edible and poisonous--and the miraculous ways in which they are threaded together throughout the natural world. Part introductory field guide and part incitement to exploration, Beyond Your Doorstep is a classic of nature writing and a must-read for anyone looking to renew his or her relationship to the outdoors.… (mer)

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this gem originally published in 1962. Hal Borland tells about his country home in New England - the wildflowers that bloom along road- and river-sides; the trees that grow in the valleys and mountainsides; the animals and birds he sees on his walks, the fish he catches in the nearby river, and a month-by-month accounting of what blooms and what birds and animals can be seen. He is quite thorough in his descriptions, whether talking about clouds and weather or describing the hazards such as poison ivy and bee stings, and yet it never became tedious to me. Instead, it was such a pleasant diversion from the chaos of the daily newsfeed (Presidential politics, anyone?) that I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Even though I live in Los Angeles, I'm not far from the hills and I've always enjoyed getting out in Nature (such as it is here), but this made me long for a home in the country and a much slower pace of life.

I was first introduced to Borland in elementary school - reading When the Legends Die. I didn't like the book. A few years passed and I read it again and I had a much different opinion.

So, it was with fond memories that I picked up this book and I really enjoyed it. I definitely felt envy for the life Borland lived - being almost part of nature, having a chance to live a life among the world around him and doing it pretty harmoniously. The book may be a little dry for some and certainly not one to get through in one read (I read it over the course of a few months - reading to our one-year-old when he was too sleepy for a picture book, but still too awake to put to bed). Anyway, long story short, I think the world needs more Hal Borlands. ( )
