The canon of U.S. nature writing, like the literary canon in general, has long been male-centered. But as this anthology shows, women’s voices have been there since the early Republic. At Home on This Earth features the most readable and accomplished pieces of nature writing by more than 50 U.S. women authors, from the early 19th century to the present. Spanning a range of genres including memoir, story, journal entry, sketch, and essay, it brings together pieces long out of print by such forgotten authors as Elizabeth C. Wright and Edith Thomas with selections by such well-known and acclaimed authors as Rachel Carson and Alice Walker. Moving far beyond the customary association of nature writing with New England and its Yankee progenitors, the book offers work from across the United States by Jewish, Asian, Hispanic, African American, and Native American women. With its rich diversity in voices, attitudes, and styles, this anthology expands the definition of nature writing, recognizes the specific contribution of women to this genre, and shows their unique relation to the natural world. Designed for undergraduate courses as well as for general readers, the book includes a short biography of the author preceding each selection. A bibliography and list of further reading is included, as well as an index of authors and titles. Lorraine Anderson’s introduction traces for the first time a distinct tradition of women’s nature writing in the United States.

For Denise Von Glahn, listening is that special quality afforded women who have been fettered for generations by the maxim "be seen and not heard." In Music and the Skillful Listener, Von Glahn explores the relationship between listening and musical composition focusing on nine American women composers inspired by the sounds of the natural world: Amy Beach, Marion Bauer, Louise Talma, Pauline Oliveros, Joan Tower, Ellen Taaffe Zwilich, Victoria Bond, Libby Larsen, and Emily Doolittle. Von Glahn situates "nature composing" among the larger tradition of nature writing and argues that, like their literary sisters, works of these women express deeply held spiritual and aesthetic beliefs about nature. Drawing on a wealth of archival and original source material, Von Glahn skillfully employs literary and gender studies, ecocriticism and ecomusicology, and the larger world of contemporary musicological thought to tell the stories of nine women composers who seek to understand nature through music.

From pre-Columbian times to the environmental justice movements of the present, women and men frequently responded to the environment and environmental issues in profoundly different ways. Although both environmental history and women's history are flourishing fields, explorations of the synergy produced by the interplay between environment and sex, sexuality, and gender are just beginning. Offering more than biographies of great women in environmental history, Beyond Nature's Housekeepers examines the intersections that shaped women's unique environmental concerns and activism and that framed the way the larger culture responded. Women featured include Native Americans, colonists, enslaved field workers, pioneers, homemakers, municipal housekeepers, immigrants, hunters, nature writers, soil conservationists, scientists, migrant laborers, nuclear protestors, and environmental justice activists. As women, they fared, thought, and acted in ways complicated by social, political, and economic norms, as well as issues of sexuality and childbearing. Nancy C. Unger reveals how women have played a unique role, for better and sometimes for worse, in the shaping of the American environment.

Leaves of Grass (deutsch Grashalme) ist das Hauptwerk von Walt Whitman, einem der bedeutendsten US-amerikanischen Lyriker. Die erste Fassung dieses Zyklus bestand aus unbetitelten Gedichten und wurde von Whitman 1855 im Selbstverlag publiziert. In den nächsten 36 Jahren wurde die Sammlung immer wieder überarbeitet und erheblich erweitert (von anfangs zwölf auf fast 400 unterschiedlich lange Gedichte, oft selber Gedichtzyklen, in der neunten Auflage 1892). Walt Whitman (1819-1892) war ein US-amerikanischer Dichter. Er gilt als einer der Begründer der modernen amerikanischen Dichtung und daher als einer der einflussreichsten amerikanischen Lyriker des 19. Jahrhunderts, dessen Werk auch in der folgenden Zeit von großer literarischer Bedeutung ist. Sein berühmtestes Werk ist sein Lebenswerk Leaves of Grass (Grashalme).
