Synopsis

Diversions of the Field contains a collection of essays tackling the subjects of hunting, fishing, game animals, and wildlife throughout different regions of the country. The Atlantic called it "a refreshing animal book," and The New York Times praised Peattie's work, contending that "it is written by a naturalist, who is at heart a poet, to the land that bore him."

Donald Culross Peattie (1898--1964) was one of the most influential American nature writers of the 20th century. Peattie was born in Chicago and grew up in Smoky Mountains in North Carolina, which sparked his interest in the immense wonders of nature. He studied at the University of Chicago and Harvard University. After working for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, he decided to pursue a career as a writer. In 1925 he became a nature columnist for the Washington Star Newspaper and subsequently went on to pen more than twenty fiction and nonfiction books in the next five decades. Widely acclaimed and popular in his age, his legacy has been attributed as inspiring a modern age of nature writing.
