Description

This anthology collects some of the year's best science and nature writing—from climate change to killer beetles, an exposé of nail salons, and more.

As guest editor Amy Stewart says in her introduction, "science writers get into the game with all kinds of noble, high-minded ambitions. We want to educate. To enlighten...But at the end of the day, we're all writers. We're just like novelists, memoirists, and poets. We're entertainers." The writers in this anthology pull off that wonderful feat of turning hard research into page-turning narrative.

From a Pulitzer Prize–winning essay on the earthquake that could decimate the Pacific Northwest to the astonishing work of investigative journalism that transformed the nail salon industry, this is a collection of hard-hitting and beautifully composed writing on the wonders, dangers, and oddities of scientific innovation and our natural world. The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2016 includes Kathryn Schulz, Sarah Maslin Nir, Charles C. Mann, Oliver Sacks, Elizabeth Kolbert, Gretel Ehrlich, and others.
