Beyond Your Doorstep

A Handbook to the Country
A non fiction book by

Hal Borland's inspiring classic on the virtues of "getting up and out" - and embracing the marvels of the natural world around us

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.
